The National Parks System manages the John and Abigail Homesteads in Quincy Massachusetts. They conduct a two hour tour starting at the Visitor's Center. A short trolley ride moves you from the house of John's birth to his final home seen in the pictures above.
The tour will additionally take you to the library built by John Quincy Adams to house John's 3,000 books. Perhaps half as many of their books are cared for by the Boston Public Library.
The NPS tour guides are experts. Generally, they have master degrees in history and show a high degree of professionalism. No question was unanswered.
If you are a senior citizen pay ten dollars or present your senior pass to enter free any of America's national parks.
An association of tour guidES for educators, amateur historians, and the general public looking to walk beyond the Freedom Trail, concentrating on the legal, philosophical, emotional and political events of Boston.
