Since the settlement of United Empire Loyalists in 1783, Weymouth has been culturally and geographically diverse. The rolling country roads will take you along the Sissiboo River and through woodland where lumberjacks and shipwrights thrived in the 1800s. The Village of Weymouth celebrates life in a gentler time, the great outdoors and our cultural roots.
