adams academyquincy historical society photoBuilt on the site of the birthplace of legendary patriot John Hancock - and funded by an endowment left by John Adams - Adams Academy began its life in 1872 as a boys' preparatory school, which operated until 1908.

In 1972, the building was renovated by the Quincy Historical Society and is now home to the new Quincy History Museum. The museum's exhibit - titled Quincy: Of Stone, Of Ships, of Minds, offers a comprehensive look at the city's history from Native American times up through the early 21 st century.
