After church this Sunday, September 4 we invite children and adults to join us for a FREE Trolley Tour of Historic Quincy! Our tour will depart from the Adams National Historic Park, 1250 Hancock Street at 11:40am (click here for directions). The trolley will bring us on guided tours of the Presidential Birthplaces of both John Adams and John Quincy Adams. We will also receive a Park Ranger tour of the Old House, residence to the Adams family for four generations.
Space is almost FULL for this FREE tour so please contact Evie Shore today!
Did You Know: The John Adams and John Quincy Adams Birthplaces are the oldest presidential birthplaces in the United States. In 1735, John Adams was born in the "salt box" house located only 75 feet away from the birthplace of his son John Quincy Adams. In the John Quincy Adams Birthplace, young John and his bride Abigail started their family and the future President launched his career in politics and law. John Adams maintained his law office in the house and it was here that he, Samuel Adams and James Bowdoin wrote the Massachusetts Constitution. This document, still in use today, greatly influenced development of the United States Constitution.
