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. 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. Unlike traditional New England communities, Weymouth has no downtown center; rather it has four village centers, each featuring its own blend of historic buildings, land uses, and open space. Due to its abundance of medical service facilities, Weymouth has been called the “South Shore’s medical Mecca”. The community has more than 20 medical buildings, which house over 100 laboratories, physician groups, and treatment centers. At the heart of the Town’s two-mile medical district is the South Shore Hospital, the Town’s largest employer and leading regional provider of acute, outpatient, home health, and hospice care. Weymouth abuts the towns of Hingham, Quincy, Braintree, Rockland, Holbrook, as well as the Atlantic Ocean.
