Best known for his Revolutionary War novel Drums, James Boyd made Weymouth the seat of the Southern Literary Renaissance. F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe were regular visitors. Weymouth is also home to the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame.
Today, Weymouth provides opportunities for writers by offering residencies, an annual writing contest, a writing camp for children, and autographed books in local schools. The James Boyd Book Club meets monthly and always welcomes new members.
At its most extensive, the estate of James Boyd included over 1500 acres. While Weymouth is somewhat smaller than that today, we still invite you to tour the cultural landscape of the Weymouth gardens. The grounds of Weymouth are maintained by our Dirt Gardeners.
Our conservation efforts are also supported by your generous donations.
