The First Church in Weymouth (17 Church Street) is one of the oldest continuing congregations in the United States and the church where Abigail Adams’s father, Reverend William Smith, served from 1734 to 1783.

Tours of the church will be offered 1:00–4:00 p.m. and will feature Reverend Smith’s bible. Light refreshments will be available.

The North Weymouth Cemetery, where Abigail Adams’s parents are buried, is one of the oldest burying grounds in Massachusetts and the site of Weymouth’s Civil War monument.
