“Interesting additional place to see while touring Adams National Historical Park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2008

For $4 a person, you can sit in the pew that John Quincy Adams and his family sat in as well as see their tombs (his and his father’s) in the crypt within the church, beside those of their wives, Abigail and Louisa Catherine Both Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams were life-long members of the Church.. An interesting note: The day we were there was a few days after John Adams birthday (October 30). The tour guide indicated to us that the current president sends a wreath for each deceased president on their birthday. The wreath laid upon the crypt was red and white carnations with blue irises and a red, white and blue bow. The tour guide allowed each woman to take a flower from the wreath upon leaving.
