A Continuing Story in North Carolina.
The story of Weymouth began in the early 1900s when James Boyd, Sr. of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, purchased over 1200 acres at the request of his daughter Helen Boyd Dull to save the longleaf pine forest from the destruction of the turpentine industry.
The Georgian mansion that we know today was built in 1922 by his grandson, author James Boyd and his wife Katharine. Here they hosted literary greats, founded the Moore County Hounds, and influenced the design of a community.
Today the story continues with a writers in residency program, literary programming, musical concerts and a dedication to conserving the gardens and longleaf pine forests.
You become part of the story each time you visit Weymouth, write about Weymouth, tell a friend about Weymouth or become a supporter of Weymouth.
