Bicknell Square

Bicknell Square is located in North Weymouth and is roughly bounded by North Street, Sea Street, and Bridge Street (Route 3A). The square is anchored visually by the Unitarian Universalist Church of Weymouth and the former Bicknell Junior High School.

While having all the elements of a village center, Bicknell Square is more diffuse and linear than Weymouth's other village centers. Commercial development extends east and west of the square and has been heavily influenced by traffic along Route 3A. Most businesses are small, service-oriented enterprises geared towards serving drivers and nearby residents. Smaller shops are located along Sea Street.

Single-family homes surround the square and are within walking distance of the area's stores. Many of the homes are architecturally significant, varying greatly in style and contributing to the area's designation as a national historic district. Homes are situated in established neighborhoods and clustered around Beals Park. Other buildings include a public library, post office, and two houses of worship.

Bicknell Square is considered a focal point for business, history, and social interaction in North Weymouth.
