The Quincy Homestead is part of the original land that Edmund Quincy acquired for a farm in the 1630s. It has been enlarged and enhanced over a period of more than 200 years and served as a home for five generations of Quincys. Their progeny include President John Quincy Adams and Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes. It is one of the few houses in Massachusetts in which the elements of a 17th century building are still clearly visible.
