    The "Old House" in Quincy, Massachusetts, residence of U. S. President John Adams and his family for four generations. It was home to Adams and his wife Abigail Adams, their son President John Quincy Adams and his wife Louisa Catherine Adams, their son Charles Francis Adams (ambassador to the United Kingdom during the American Civil War), and historians Henry Adams and Brooks Adams. This house is now part of the Adams National Historical Park operated by the National Park Service.

    John and Abigail Adams bought this house, "Peacefield", in 1787. It had belonged to a Loyalist who fled New England during the war. It sits right next to the other two Adams homes, the John Adams birthplace home and the John Quincy Adams birthplace home. All three houses are part of the Adams National Historic Park, which is managed by the National Park Service.

Abigail had it enlarged to its present size, and four generations of the Adamses lived in it, each adding to the treasures inside (which I was not allowed to photograph). The Adams family, of which there are presently about a hundred or so, meet here occasionally for family gatherings.
