The city of Weymouth, named after a coastal town in England, was incorporated in 1635 and is crawling with history. Before it was Weymouth, this area was a failed colony known as the Wessagusset Colony. After it was colonized again, it became heavily involved in the shoemaking industry up until 1973 when the Stetson Shoe Company closed its doors. This city is also the birthplace of Abigail Adams, wife of President John Adams and mother to President John Quincy Adams. The home still stands in the city today and is open to public visitors.
