About Us

The home of James and Katharine Boyd is now the Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities, a cultural center dedicated to conserving the remaining 26 acre estate as a natural preserve and park, including the formal gardens designed by Alfred Yeomans, and the longleaf pine forest. The Boyd house, a 9,000 sf Georgian mansion, still serves as a writers residency, the site of poetry readings, dramatic performances, music concerts and recitals. James Boyd’s study is the home of the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame, established in 1996.
Please visit the website for more history and information about the Boyds and the Weymouth property.
