Weston was originally part of the Watertown settlement of 1630, but until the end of the century, the land was used mainly for grazing cattle. In 1698, "The Farms" was set off as a separate precinct with its own meetinghouse; and in 1712-13, the "Farmers’ Precinct" was incorporated as a separate town, Weston. wikipedia

Weston includes: Kendall Green Station, Riverside, Silver Hill Station, Stoney Brook, Cherry Brook Station, and Hastings Station.
