Abigail Adams House Weymouth, MA
For sixty years the Abigail Adams Historical Society has preserved the birthplace and legacy of one of the nation’s most revered and influential women. The Society’s first act, in 1947, was to move the threatened structure from its second location to a third and final resting place near its original site. The current structure is a restoration of a portion of the house of Reverend William Smith, Abigail’s father, built in 1685. Abigail grew up in the house and was married there to John Adams in October 1764.
