Wells River is a village in the town of Newbury in Orange County, of the Woodstock-Quechee region and is located at the junction of U.S. Routes 5 and 302.

Taking its name from the Wells River, which flows into the Connecticut River at the eastern edge of the village, the village has more recognition than the town in which it is located, and the village center was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 as Wells River Village Historic District.

The area was first called Governor's Right because 500 acres were granted to Governor Benning Wentworth of New Hampshire.
