Happy Valentine’s week from Weymouth! If you were out here last week you may have noticed window restoration work in progress. It was part of the continuing capital improvements projects funded by the latest grant from R.J.Reynolds. We will begin working on the roof over the Writer’s Porch next. This essential work will protect and preserve the integrity of the Boyd House.
We are renting event space. If you’re planning a gathering for a special occasion or event, don’t forget that Weymouth offers indoor and outdoor spaces with the most unique and beautiful ambiance! We follow the state mandates and observe strict protocols, so reach out to Marianna in the front office to book your next event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone 910-692-6261.
Looking back to 1942. Not sure who the figure is. Maybe he was there to trim the hedges!
An extension up Vermont Avenue led to the front door on the North side of the house. This door led to a brick foyer and covered porch. (Archives)
