Wonalancet, New Hampshire is a gateway to the White Mountain National Forest. Our community may be small in population, but it is beloved with a very special passion by full-time and part-time residents, and visitors alike. The community also has a rich and fascinating 250 year history, which will soon be featured in a special section of this website. (History lovers stay tuned!) (more detailed history is coming to our Library)
In the 1970s a small group of residents began meeting to discuss guidelines for local land protection. In 1977 WPA was formed and our mission defined. Since that time our covenant has set a local standard of protection and preservation for much of the Wonalancet basin. Today the Wonalancet Preservation Association continues to pursue and refine that mission, actively encouraging and supporting permanent protection strategies.
