We hope you enjoy exploring this revised website. We continue to add content, and we welcome your suggestions. Children (and adults) may have fun exploring the children's section created by talented students at the Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts.
The year 2013 marked a milestone in Weston history-- the 300th anniversary of the town's incorporation. It was also the 50th anniversary of the Weston Historical Society, which grew out of the 250th celebration. The historical society had two representatives on the Weston300 Committee, Elizabeth Eaton and Pam Fox. The committee was formed by the Selectmen to plan the Tercentennial celebration, and most town organizations participated in some way. The historical society provided historical resources needed to make this an educational as well as a festive and fun-filled year.
The Weston Historical Society is currently located in the Josiah Smith Tavern. We urge town residents to stay informed and participate in discussions about the future of the tavern, which needs major repairs to bring it up to code. The outcome of this process will determine the future of the society in its next half century and beyond.
Please consider joining the Weston Historical Society. We would not exist without the financial support of our members. We invite you to come by the Josiah Smith Tavern on Tuesday mornings to view the collections or research a topic of interest. Volunteers are always needed. We can find a useful and interesting task to suit everyone's talents and time constraints. Please do not hesitate to call me at 781-893-3093 if you have questions or would like to make an appointment.
