I recently visited Southern Pines and decided to explore this Center. I didn't really realize it was the home of the Boyd family as I had driven over for the NC Literary Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is actually in what was an office, and all of it is well worth a few hours of time. The home is well preserved with helpful notes for the rooms as well as the Hall of Fame. Additionally, there are beautiful gardens out back that connect into walking trails. I not only enjoyed my visit, but was delighted to meet Marianna-the Office Manager, who is quite knowledgeable about the Center, the Boyd family, the Hall of Fame and the town itself. For those that live in the area, there appear to be many events at the Center, but again, its well worth a few hours if in the area. Really enjoyed my visit.

Stopped in for a hike back to the Weymouth Woods and walked around the gardens. This would be a great place for a formal event. My only complaint was the poor signage to find the trails.

We visited the Weymouth during a recent visit to Southern Pines. Beautiful gardens and a lovely day!
Easy access to the gardens and the hiking area. Great place to take the grandchildren!

Came to the Weymouth Center for the Party for the Pine. Great event on beautiful grounds. Enjoyed the hike to the old tree. Next time will bring the pups.
