Description of Historic Place
Bayside Farm also known as Bayside Farm Inn is a fine example of the Gothic Revival Style with Greek elements. It is a one and one half storey wooden building with a two storey extension on the side and sits on a large acreage in Weymouth North. Heritage designation is limited to the building and building footprint only.
Built in the 1850s, Bayside Farm is valued for its contribution to the growth of Weymouth’s tourism industry during the first half of the 20th century. The farm was operated as an inn in the early 1900s and was a popular summer resort offering five rooms upstairs for tourists. It is a well-maintained Gothic Revival home and it continues to stand as a fine example of this style in the Weymouth community.
