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 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.
