“Beautiful and very historical cemetery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

While in town, went to visit this cemetery where my 10th Great Grandfather is buried. RIP Great Grandfather Henry Adams. Lovely tombstones. Just wished that it was not so snowy and cold so that we could have enjoyed it more. Very interesting burial "mounds" along sides of this cemetery. Worth a visit.

Interesting to see the site where some of the Adams family were buried. Worth the few minutes to walk around.

“A Fun Walk through History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Tour the cemetery during the day, ideally with a guide who can show you the specific points of interest. It's a convenient location just across Hancock St. from The First Unitarian Church and a short walk to the MBTA subway line.

This is a beautiful and historic cemetery close to downtown Quincy Center, across the street from the United First Parish Church. Recommended!

“A Peaceful resting place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We searched for ancestral graves in the Hancock Cemetery while in Quincy. The setting is right downtown in Quincy close to the national park office and places to eat. It is so interesting to view and read inscriptions on historical graves and this is a lovely and peaceful resting place. John and Abigail Adams' family members are buried here along with many other notable patriots.
