The volunteers at the parish church are well-versed in the Adams family history. The vaults holding the two presidents and their wives was really fascinating and you could walk right up beside them. This is a very interesting site to visit and support.

After seeing Adams NHP, complete your visit to Quincy at United First Parish Church! Very interesting, informative guided tour offered by donation. You will visit the final resting places of Presidents John Adams & John Quincy Adams and their wives.

This was the perfect wrap up to our tour of the Adam's homes. It was an excellent guided tour, very relaxing and meaningful. The church is a short walk across the street from the Park Service office/gift shop.

Although I have lived in Quincy for over 20 years,this is the first time that I have been on one of these tours. The suggested admission charge is $3. The tour guide was very knowledgeable,well worth a visit.
