Follow the words and history of four generations of Adamses, from their experiences at the Old State House, through Beacon Hill, and into Back Bay. John, Abigail, and their descendants were prolific writers. The trove of documents they left behind intimately describe their lives, public service, and Boston from the eve of the Revolution to the turn of the twentieth century.

Our 2019 Adams Family in Boston tour is presented in coordination with the Massachusetts Historical Society's year-long 'Remember Abigail' commemoration. We will place special emphasis on Abigail's words and perspective, even as the tour proceeds through the experiences of her descendants.

"My Eyes are so diverted with Chimney Sweeps, Carriers of Wood, Merchants, Ladies, Priests, Carts, Horses, Oxen, Coaches, Market men and Women, Soldiers, Sailors, and my Ears with the Rattle Gabble of them all..." -- John Adams, diary, March 18-19, 1759
