The land that comprises Wakefield was originally home to local Native American tribes.

In 1749, the town was granted by John Mason, originally taking on the name East Town. It was officially incorporated by Governor John Wentworth in 1774 and given the name Wakefield, in honor of a town near Wentworth Castle in England. In its early years, Wakefield had a booming lumber industry and was home to several sawmills, gristmills, shingle mills and more.

Nearly 12 percent of Wakefield's total area is made up of water. It includes parts of Pine River, Branch River, Province Lake, Pine River Pond, Belleau Lake, Balch Lake, Sandy Pond, Lovell Lake, Union Meadows, Lake Ivanhoe, Great East Lake and Horn Pond.

Over the years, Wakefield has been called home by many notable people, including NHL player Freddy Meyer and U.S. Congressmen Joshua G. Hall, Harry Libbey and William Nathaniel Rogers.

Wakefield is governed by an elected Board of Selectmen. The town boasts a full-time police department, a full-time and volunteer fire department and municipal emergency medical services. Top employers in the area include Longmeadow Hardware, Lovell Lake Food Center, Badman Family Practice, Poor Peoples Pub and Knotty Pine Restaurant & Tavern.
