Incredibly well preserved properties and items from the multi century legacy of the John Adams family. It's a bit disjointed as you park in downtown Quincy (where Nat'l Parks office is located in a modern, antiseptic office tower [what, they couldn't have found one of the dozens of historic downtown buildings to set up shop?) then shuttle to the two locations, both of which are exeptional.

My American History loving family reveled in our visit to the Adams homes. The rangers give great tours of these important sites. It's an easy ride on the T from downtown Boston.

The tour is simply terrific. It is a bit short on history but the park service guides are full of stories and local knowledge; they really complete the experience. The insight and experience from the three houses is remarkable and highlights the improvement in living standards and accommodations we enjoy in modern homes. Although I have read much on the family prior to the visit I suspect it will inspire many to learn more about the nations second President and his remarkable family.

The rangers at the birthplace homes and at the Old House were all very knowledgable and friendly. There is a lot of history here and they did a good job of trying to relate various parts of the houses into events at various times. Parking in the garage was easy; I am guessing it being on the weekend helped that a bit. I wish they would allow at least allow non-flash photography inside some parts of the homes. But even without there is a lot to take in and learn here. and the garden is very pretty and manicured.

Before you go I strongly suggest watch the HBO mini series, John Adams. You will ckearly b enjoy viewing where and how John but mostly Abigail Adams spent years alone on this vast home and land.
You will appreciate what she had to endore to survive. While her Vice Presudent, Ambassador of France ect husband continued to do to better his career. It's a Besutiful Historic Home and I would strongly advice seeing the 1st home they started off in..Quincy is so full of history. Enjiy, but if you get a chance, view the HBO series first n if you can. I have enclosed a few pictures of my grandaughter doing some photo shots. Showing a tiny bit how beautiful the grounds are.
