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 was founded in 1879, and is a non-profit organization funded by donations and membership dues. The mission of the Weymouth Historical Society is to protect and preserve the history of Weymouth, Massachusetts. The Society maintains and operates the Jason Holbrook Homestead.
