Weymouth Township

Weymouth Township located in the southwest section of Atlantic County in the New Jersey Pinelands or Pine Barrens and contains the towns of Belcoville and Dorothy. It covers an area of 12.12 square miles, is bordered by the Great Egg Harbor River, South River, and Tuckahoe River, and is largely rural. The area was settled in the late 1600's when Weymouth Township once comprised the area of what is now Atlantic County.

Our name origin is Weymouth, England - An ancient seaport and modern terminal for ferries from the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. It is located at the mouth of the Wey River on Weymouth Bay. Weymouth is a popular beach resort of Georgian and Victorian houses. In olden days it was a naval port and the site of an important castle. King George III had a summer house there. In 1694 the Quaker fathers in Gloucester County named our township Weymouth because it was their township on the sea. They had no idea just how big a township they had created. Some of the Quakers may have left England from the port of Weymouth making it their last glimpse of the motherland.

Letter from the Mayor

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As the weather gets cooler and the year winds down, these final months seem to fly with the hustle and bustle of work, school, sports and activities, spending more time with families enjoying the outdoors before the winter cold is upon us once again. The holiday season is approaching and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I think it is a good time to pause and reflect on the past year and what we are thankful for. Of course at the top of my list is my family, my health, my friends and neighbors.

I am very fortunate to live in a community with such a positive small town feel. We have countless volunteers throughout our community that make this community such a great one. From our Dorothy Volunteer Fire Company, to our Planning, Zoning, Environmental Commission and MUA Boards, to our Special Events Committee, so on behalf of the Township Committee, I would like to thank you all for giving of your time and commitment to a job well done.

This year, it is with great pride that Weymouth Township will present a float in the Mays Landing Halloween Parade. The annual parade is on Friday night, October 30th. We will be celebrating Halloween with our Trick or Treat on October 31st. Then on Saturday, November 28th, come celebrate the season at the township building with a live Nativity, our choir, Santa, and refreshments.

I look forward to celebrating with all of you. Until then on behalf of the Township Committee and myself, I wish you all good health, happiness and all the blessings of the season.

Mayor Ken Haeser
