Norfield Congregational Church

Located along Norfield Road, this wood-frame church was originally built in 1757 and takes its design influence from the Greek Revival style. The Norfield Congregational Church belongs to a complex that includes a parish hall, a Christian Education Building, memorial garden, parking area, and a front lawn with a Weston World War II memorial. The church still holds Sunday services today, and is part of the Norfield Historic District.

The Coley Homestead

Located at 104 Weston Road, the Coley Homestead was established in 1834 on 15 acres of land that eventually grew to over 100 acres of farmland and meadows. It was occupied by five generations of the Coley family, spanning a period of 167 years. Here they raised livestock and planted both cash and feed crops on the expansive farmland.

Today, the Homestead encompasses 3.7 acres and includes the Greek Revival-style Coley House, a large barn and cattle shed, a carriage house, several small outbuildings and a cider press shed. The Coley House is currently the home of the Weston Historical Society.

The Onion Barn

This one story, gable-entry, gable-roof barn was built in 1830 and used to store onions, which was Weston’s cash crop at the time. Located along Weston Road, the barn is owned by the Banks family and is clad in vertical flush-board siding, with wood shingles on the roof.

The Onion Barn today is well-known as Weston’s community bulletin board, with various organizations posting announcements on its bleached brown slats. Most of the posters are for school fundraisers, and every winter the Boy Scouts advertise their annual wreath sale here.

Built in 1844, this stately Colonial-style home has been lovingly restored and renovated to include modern conveniences, and it exudes the warmth of a bygone era that’s very much a treasured part of Weston’s history.

All 13 rooms – 6 bedrooms and 5.1 baths – have rich period detailing and exposed beams. The sprawling picturesque estate also features a swimming pool and tennis court outside. The Oscar Budd House was last sold in 2007 for over $1.4 million; it is currently once again on the market.
