Weymouth History

Weymouth dates back to 1622 and was founded under the name of Wessagusset. It was not renamed until 1635 when 100 English settlers arrived in the area. The town first began as a fishing and agricultural community and started to flourish after the American Revolution. After iron was discovered in the area, Weymouth Iron Works was established and the town started to become an industrial area. The increase in businesses quickly turned Weymouth into the bedroom community of Boston, which brought in even more residents. Between 1945 and 1960, the population increased greatly and turned the town into a popular suburb.
