In 1791 Stephen Payson and Colonel John Taylor were appointed by Governor Parr to locate a number of new immigrants on lands around Sissibou (Sissiboo) River. At this time, settlement in Weymouth was along the Fort Point Road area. In 1839, Governor Parr commissioned a new bridge and road be built down river were the present day bridge is located. The area quickly became the commercial centre for the community and in 1839 Stephen Payson purchased four acres from his father, Nathaniel Payson. Sometime in 1840 Nathaniel built the home. Over the years, the bridge community prospered and many homes and buildings grew around this modest vernacular home. Today, this property stands as an historic land mark on the Weymouth landscape. There is a 5 year grant available with up to $5000 for exterior or structural work. This grant is available to the buyer of this property.
