About the Class: “Becoming Weymouth: The Colonial Era” is an interactive history class series from the Weymouth Historical Society (WHS) that focuses on the Colonial Era in Weymouth, Massachusetts. We begin by talking about the Massachusett Nation before Thomas Weston sends his company to Wessagussett from England in 1622, and end with the marriage of Abigail Smith to John Adams in October of 1764. During this history class series, you will learn what was happening right here in Weymouth and how what happened here at home connected to, and affected, the larger world around us during the New England Colonial Era. The series is comprised of four classes, meeting once a week for a month.

Audience: Anyone interested in history! Children under 16 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult for the entire session.
