WOLFEBORO — WMUR-TV's NH Chronicle team visited Wolfeboro this past Monday, June 21 to begin filming a feature about Wolfeboro's 250th Anniversary.

Historian Dave Bowers of Wolfeboro was interviewed by Channel Nine News Anchor and NH Chronicle Co-Host Tom Griffith at the Clark House Historical Complex on South Main Street.

Bowers explained how Wolfeboro was named for British General James Wolfe, who distinguished himself in 1759 by winning he Battle of Quebec and turning the tide in the French and Indian War to England's favor.

Griffith and Bowers also talked about Colonial Governor John Wentworth, who made his summer home in Wolfeboro in the 1770s, the reason why Wolfeboro is recognized as "the oldest summer resort in America."

Other sites chosen for filming included Cate Park and the Wolfeboro Town Docks, Wentworth State Park and the former site of the Wentworth House on Rte 109.

NH Chronicle will be anchored from Wolfeboro during the week of July 13-16, using segments filmed on Monday. Hosted by Griffith and Co-Anchor Tiffany Eddy, the program is aired Monday through Friday at 7:30 p.m. on Channel Nine.
