Alamo Lake is approximately 38 miles north of Wenden on Alamo Lake Road. Wenden provides gas, food, and supplies to the Alamo Lake travelers. Agriculture is rapidly being developed and enjoying prosperous growth and returns in the surrounding area of Wenden.

Rich in old gold mines, Rockhounds love to explore the "Outback" of Wenden. The unspoiled beauty of the land surrounding Wenden is evidenced by the designated wilderness areas of the Harquahala Mountains. The picture at left was taken in the foothills of the Harquahala Mtns, facing West, 5 miles East of Wenden.

The town was first established by Otis E. Young in 1905, naming the community Wendendale, in honor of his Midwest home. Post Office authorities later shortened it to Wenden. The town was first founded as a supply depot for the mines in the area, and in 1907, Wells Fargo established an office for the shipment of gold.

Wenden is represented by the McMullen Valley Chamber of Commerce
