The Adams family

Yesterday, we toured the birthplaces of John Adams, the second president, and his son John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States.

The homes are in good shape. One was built in 1681. Another was built in the early 18th century, and the third, the fancy home that John and Abigail Adams purchased after they were more financially secure, was a fancy place built by a English gentleman who had to go back to England after the American Revolution made him uncomfortable in Quincy, MA.
