Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 5, 2005):
The Quincy Homestead is a remarkable example of New England architecture and its transformations from the late seventeenth century to the late nineteenth century. The surviving elements of the architecture of the seventeenth century, early and late Georgian period, late Victorian period, and Colonial or Georgian Revival found in the Quincy Homestead provide a unique opportunity to see with remarkable clarity the changing forms, styles and preferences of more than three hundred years of American and New England architecture. The house represents an early use of the gambrel roof in the region and domestic architecture, and its restoration in 1904 represents one of the earliest efforts at restoration of a domestic site in the Boston region by a heritage preservation group.
