Welcome to our website! 

     Established on April 1, 1805, the Town of Wells has followed many footprints. Progress has altered its initial appearance but the town's ability to sustain despite struggles remains in step with the first footprints made. Wells continues, a wonderful community that has retained the simple pleasures and family atmosphere of small town life. The town offers this website as a means of communicating important information and events with its residents and other members of the general public.  It is constantly being updated so check back often.
