Description - Weymouth by Debbie Sargent Sullivan

Weymouth, the second oldest town in Massachusetts, was established in 1622 and was a fishing and agricultural community for almost two hundred years before becoming a shoe-manufacturing center in the nineteenth century. Birthplace of Abigail Adams, the first woman to be the wife of one U.S. president and the mother of another, the town has enjoyed a long and exciting political and economic history. Through a fascinating collection of more than two hundred images, Weymouth illustrates the homes, businesses, institutions, and pleasures of Weymouth citizens of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It features photographs of each of the town's geographic areas-South Weymouth, Weymouth Landing, East Weymouth, and North Weymouth-with chapters highlighting recreation (few will remember Lovell's Grove, but many readers will remember the old Fairgrounds in South Weymouth), industries as varied as shoe manufacturing and ice cutting, tall-steepled white New England churches, our very own Mount Vernon, the South Weymouth Naval Air Station, the herring run, and, of course, the fire station that burned-twice.
