Peacefield (John Adams home in Quincy)    Quincy, Massachusetts. John and Abigail Adams lived here many years, and so did many descendants. The family kept everything just as it was until it was presented to the Park Service, and the contents are preserved intact to this day. That seems to be very rare for historic houses! The outside still looks just as it did in old pictures.

Abigail Adams (1744 – 1818) wife of President John Adams and mother of President John Quincy Adams. Abigail was not merely a great woman behind the great men; she actively brought attention to women's issues throughout her husbands political career, was an adviser to her husband, and a diarist who kept invaluable records during the beginning of the US as a nation.
