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!

Visit Us at the Jason Holbrook Homestead

The Weymouth Historical Society is open on Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (excluding holidays) at the Holbrook Homestead, located at 238 Park Avenue, South Weymouth. It is also open by appointment. Admission is free. Please call (781) 340-1022 in advance for group and special tours.

Weymouth Historical Museum (at Tufts Library) CLOSED AS OF JUNE 2018

Due to the renovation of Tufts Library, the Weymouth Museum is closed. We will not be in the new library and a new location for the museum is not known at this time. Our museum occupied the lower level of Tufts Library for 52 years! It welcomed thousands of visitors overall and our volunteers gave museum tours to over 400 Weymouth third grade students every year. We thank Tufts Library for providing us with the space for all these years, and we thank everyone else for their support and visits.

 

The backdrop seen here is a painting done by a Weymouth artist, Susan Torrey Merrit, circa 1850. It is titled "Fourth of July Picnic at Weymouth Landing."
