Quincy, MA

Today we went to visit the homes of John Adams and John Quincy Adams in Quincy, MA.
The trolley we rode to visit the three homes.

The birthplace of John Adams.
After touring this home we toured a home next door that was the birthplace of John Quincy Adams. I am not sure why but we didn't get a picture of that house.
Later on, the Adams family moved to this home. This is Peacefield.

The old stone library which was built as a fireproof place to store all the volumes from John Quincy Adams' library.

Another view of Peacefield.

A tree and flower beds outside the stone library.

A statue of Abigail Adams and John Quincy Adams.
