However, many people do not know of the second colony that was planted in what we now know as Weymouth, Massachusetts. The second colony was named Wessagusset as the local Indians called it. It’s history has been lost somewhat in the mists of time and is only known to the few who have an interest in this area of history. Wessagusset never gained the fame nor status of its predecessor, probably due to the fact that it lasted less than a year and was an utter failure. There are however some very interesting and intriguing occurrences, myths, yarns and legends about this forgotten colony.
