Wolfeboro is a somewhat small town located in the state of New Hampshire. With a population of 6,225 people and just one neighborhood, Wolfeboro is the 52nd largest community in New Hampshire.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns, Wolfeboro isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Wolfeboro are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Wolfeboro is a town of professionals, service providers and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Wolfeboro who work in sales jobs (10.00%), teaching (9.66%) and office and administrative support (9.25%).
Of important note, Wolfeboro is also a town of artists. Wolfeboro has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Wolfeboro’s character.
A relatively large number of people in Wolfeboro telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 12.11% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Wolfeboro is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the town experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller town.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Wolfeboro is worth considering.
