The City of Quincy offers free guided walking tours, seasonally, starting inside Old City Hall. A walk through Quincy Center takes you on a voyage through time from the earliest colonial days, to the era of the Adams, Quincy and Hancock families, and to Quincy’s decades of the national center of granite quarrying and building. Adams and Hancock Streets in Quincy Center are part of one of the oldest roads in America. A path cut by Native Americans untold centuries ago, it became, in earliest colonial times, the road from Boston to Plymouth and remained in John Adams’ time the main road south of Boston. In walking along this route, you are truly walking in the footsteps of John and Abigail Adams. Tour bring visitors to the historic Hancock Cemetery and Adams Crypt.
