The First Summer Resort in America became such because the first Royal Governor of New Hampshire, John Wentworth established a summer estate known as Kingswood on Lake Wentworth in 1770. This site can still be visited though just a foundation is left. Wolfeboro has six water bodies within the town or with the town sharing shore frontage  such as on Lake Winnipesaukee. Some facts and figures about these lakes are listed below.
