Wareham was located immediately south of Sandstone on Government Road. Government Road (also known as "Douglas Highway" or the "Old Military Road") had served as a main route in the community, and present day Interstate 35 is nearby.
The community of Wareham originally had access to the Great Northern Railway line; with the former rail right-of-way still being used by electrical transmission lines.
The Kettle River and a stage-coach road built by the military were also in the vicinity. After old Highway 61 was improved by the 1940s, running through nearby Friesland, Wareham then became a ghost town.
In the present day, a camp is located where the community had once existed; with access to the river.
