Logo   John Adams & John Q Adams Birthplace
John Adams was born in a modest-looking, darkly weathered New England "saltbox" house which now stands near the center of Quincy, Massachusetts.



This modest farmhouse (map) in Quincy, Massachusetts, 10 miles (16 km) south of Boston, was John Adams' home during his boyhood, youth and young married life with Abigail Smith Adams.

It served as his law office as well. Here, working with Samuel Adams and James Bowdoin, he wrote the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, among the earliest and best of American state constitutions. It served as a model for the United States Constitution.

Next to the old Adams house, a newer, larger, more stately wood frame building is the birthplace of John Quincy Adams.

You can visit both houses on a tour organized by the Adams National Historical Park. More...
