Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities has flourished as a full-fledged cultural center since 1979, with an established Chamber Music Series, Ragan Writers Series and an Arts and Humanities Lecture Series. Our Writers-in-Residence Program offers writers an opportunity to stay at Weymouth for up to two weeks a year to pursue their work. There have been over six hundred residencies here, and many writers have said their most creative periods occurred in the tranquil, inspiring atmosphere of the Boyds’ home. The Chamber Music Series features nationally and internationally known chamber musicians and performers from the music facilities of North Carolina’s universities. Local youth are provided an opportunity to participate in the annual Moore County Writers Competition and the Youth Music Festival. The Ragan Writers Series hosts readings by a diverse group of North Carolina’s highly acclaimed writers as well as the Blumenthal Writers and Readers Series. The lecture series features a variety of subjects presented by prominent professors and educators. The Weymouth Center also enjoys a strong affiliation with area garden clubs, including the Sandhills Council of Garden Clubs.
Available as a location for private functions, Weymouth is also a favorite setting for weddings, receptions, galas, recitals and picnics.
