Adams National Historical Park - Quincy, Massachusetts

The birthplaces of John Adams and John Quincy Adams are the nation's oldest presidential birthplaces.  These historic homes stand on their original foundations just 75 feet apart.  The trolley will also take you to Peace Field, the retirement home of John and Abigail Adams.  Begin at the Visitor Center - Adams National Historical Park, 135 Adams Street, Quincy, MA 02169-1749.  Phone 617.770.1175 or visit www.nps.gov/adam for more information.

John Adams, our second president, grew up in this rural setting just 7 miles south of Boston.  In October of 1764, he married Abigail Smith.  The couple moved into the farmhouse next to John's birthplace.  This little cottage was the birthplace of their oldest son John Quincy Adams.  John Quincy became the 6th president of the United States.

If you love history...this is the place for you!
The "Inn at Bay Pointe" offers a large menu and great vistas!
After a delightful tour and visit to the gift shop, we enjoyed a nice lunch at the "Inn at Bay Pointe", 64 Washington Court, Quincy.  This bay side dining experience was a great way to top off the day in historic Quincy.  Their phone number is 617.472.3200 and is a short drive from the Visitor Center.
