Beginning with James Boyd, Sr, and continuing with James and Katherine Boyd, Weymouth’s established tradition of generous hospitality is one that we’re proud to carry on today.
Indoors, the Great Room can be fitted with tables for intimate catered affairs or to host larger, less formal events. The Downstairs Library, Upstairs Conference Room, and the North Carolina Hall of Fame are also available for cozy gatherings.
But if it’s a one-of-a-kind gala that you’re planning, we invite you to Weymouth’s gardens for a garden party or evening cocktails. Both the Garden Room and the Terrace are available as are our historic gardens. Whether it’s black-tie or a costume masquerade, the Weymouth staff is experienced and ready to help you plan your event.
The Weymouth house and gardens provide a unique variety of space for community, business, and personal rentals. Whether hosting a large event, corporate retreat, business meeting requiring breakout spaces, or an intimate affair, the 1922 Boyd House gracefully meets your needs.
The commercial kitchen, boardroom, library, great room, veranda, patios and side lawns set within the privacy of the 22-acre estate afford the best of modern conveniences in a historic landmark setting.
Marquis tents are easily accommodated on the two side lawns.
GENERAL PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY:
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.
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.
