History

Granted on October 1759 by Gov. John Wentworth, Wolfeboro was inhabited in the year 1767 and incorporated in the year 1770. The town was named for Gen. Wolfe, a conqueror of the Battle of Quebec.

The town started as a farming village with Dimon’s Corner, an activity center. This colony was on the stage route to Conway from Denver. The lumber, sales and development of apple products played a huge role in the early industry. In addition, the Wolfeboro Falls was called the “Slab City” due to wood-related activities that took place in that area. Wood products continued to be a main local business until early 20th century.

Downtown Wolfeboro or the “bridge” was never the center of activity for a lot of years. Individual units were formed in South Wolfeboro, Wolfeboro Center, Dimon’s Corner, Wolfeboro Falls, Goose Corner, and Pleasant Valley.

With the construction of Wolfeboro R.R. in the year 1872 and the end of Civil War, the tourist industry started to prosper. Built in 1850, The Pavilion is the original hotel of main importance and was followed by many others. Mt. Washington was introduced in the year 1872 and had taken tourists by water throughout summer. In this town, tourism remains to be a main industry.
