Weymouth is the second oldest town in the Commonwealth, developed as a trading post not long after the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth.  Weymouth is also the site of the very first town meeting.  The recorded history of Weymouth begins in 1622, and our graveyards and genealogical records are rich with early American history!

The Weymouth Historical Society is open on Wednesdays, 9am - 1pm, at the Jason Holbrook Homestead.  If you would like to call ahead, the number is (781) 340.1022.
