Weymouth was founded in the 1760s by New England Planters after the Acadian Expulsion. Originally, Weymouth was known as 'Sissiboo.' Weymouth is located in Digby County, on the West shores of Nova Scotia and is 257 km (159.7 mi.) west of Halifax, travelling on highway 101. The most known Loyalist to travel to Weymouth after the Revolution was James Moody, who George Washington once proclaimed to be "that villain Moody." In the 1800s, Weymouth would become a prospering shipbuilding town, and then Weymouth's industry would shift to forestry, after a local saw mill was built.

In 1929, a major fire claimed a quarter million dollars in damages, with only a fraction of that covered by insurance, coupled with the tumbling economy, Weymouth never fully recovered.

Weymouth is home to rolling hills, restored homes, heritage buildings of Victorian and Georgian architectural style, the Evangeline Trail, beautifully angled riverbanks and prosperous maple trees. Weymouth visitors can enjoy kayaking, canoeing, hiking, sport fishing and whale watching. The Festival Acadian de Claire, the world's oldest Acadian festival, celebrates the Acadian culture and offers a boat parade, a deep-sea fishing tournament and outdoor concerts and more.

Weymouth accommodations include hotels, cottages and bed and breakfasts.
