Nectarines in a basketWeymouth Center welcomes all group tours, whether educational, corporate, or simply recreational.

In particular, we welcome homeschoolers and all educational groups. Our goal is to be not only a cultural resource for the community but to foster a love of history, literature, music, and conservation in future generations. If you or your young writer, artist, or musician are interested, make sure to check out our summer Write-On Camp and our Young Musicians Festival.

For more information about tours or to schedule a community service project for your organization, please call (910) 692-6261 or email the front office.

The Boyd House and the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame are open to the public, Monday through Friday (10 AM – 2 PM) and are free of charge.

The Weymouth Gardens are open and free to the public from dawn to dusk, year-round.

The James Boyd House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

For exclusive events or for tours outside of set hours, please inquire.

*Photographers and those interested in photo shoots at Weymouth Center:

Call the office at least a week before you wish to use the grounds for photography sessions to ensure that they will be open for your group.

RESTRICTIONS: If there is an ongoing event on the day you wish to take photographs, please respect the party and call the office to schedule a time to come back. Even if the event is inside the house the photography session is a distraction and will be addressed by the staff. Taking photos against the Boyd House during an event is forbidden. Weymouth reserves the right to remove a group from the premises if the group is distracting or disruptive to the staff, renters or Writers-In-Residence.

WEDDING & RECEPTION:  A bride with a contract to have her wedding at Weymouth may have her photographs taken at here for no additional cost. An appointment must be made through the front office.

PROFESSIONAL PORTRAITS & GROUP PHOTOS: A photographer may use parts of the Boyd house interior for $75 or more, dependent upon the extent and time of the shoot. The gardens and grounds may be used for a fee dependent upon the size of the group and space and time needed. An appointment for the shoot must be made with by calling the Business Office at 910-692-6261. This policy includes use of the gardens and grounds, as well as using Weymouth buildings for backdrops and interior photos.

We love when people choose Weymouth Center for photo backdrops! We ask that you consider a donation and acknowledgement to our “Dirt Gardeners” who lovingly tend the gardens and grounds around the Weymouth Center throughout the year.
