Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 19, 1960):
John Quincy Adams, sixth President of the United States, was born in this frame New England saltbox in 1767. His father, John Adams, had moved here in 1764 and used one room as a law office for several years. In 1896, the Adams family restored the house for use as headquarters of the Quincy Historical Society and in 1940 deeded it to the city. The Society operates the Adams house as museums.
