The former Waumbek Golf Course is for sale

JEFFERSON — The former Waumbek Golf Course is for sale. Following months of rumors, the 370-acre property is on the market for $1.3 million. The property consists of five lots and is being marketed as vacant land, raising the possibility it could be used for housing. The listing published Wednesday on Redfin.com states, “Rarely does a property of this size with breathtaking Presidential Mountain Range views become available.” Members of a community Facebook page, some of them worried about over-development, have already suggested that the town try and buy the property.  The Select Board appears ready to discuss the matter at a future meeting. They meet next on Aug. 22.
