Weymouth Real Estate Update
Weymouth is the second oldest township in the Commonwealth, dating back to 1622. For almost two hundred years the town was a fishing and agricultural community, evolving into a manufacturing hub for shoes in the late 19th century. Remnants of every era, from colonization to industrialization to suburbanization, are evident in the very shape of the community. Rich in history, Weymouth is home to the birthplace of Abigail Adams, wife to U.S. President John Adams and mother to U.S. President John Quincy Adams.
Today, Weymouth is a mature, strongly residential suburb located just south of Boston, with close proximity to the crossroads of Route I-93 (128) and Route 3. The community is nicely situated for easy access to Cape Cod and the Greater Boston area. Three MBTA commuter rail stations provide quick transportation into the city, as well. Unlike traditional New England towns, Weymouth has no downtown center. Rather it has four village centers, each featuring its own blend of historic buildings, land use, and open space.
