From the sweet little farm at the foot of Penn’s Hill to the gentleman’s country estate at Peace field, Adams National Historical Park is the story of “heroes, statesman, philosophers … and learned women” whose ideas and actions helped to transform thirteen disparate colonies into one united nation.
Begin your Adams experience at the park Visitor Center, located at 1250 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA, and view the orientation film, Enduring Legacy: Four Generations of the Adams Family, a 26 minute film introducing the remarkable Adams family. Browse the park bookstore for even more information and a variety of souvenirs to remind you of your visit to this historical park and the contributions of four generations of the Adams family to the history and development of the United States.
