The Quincy Homestead 1686 is a National Historic Landmark. It is located in Quincy Massachusetts at 34 Butler Road, on the corner of Hancock Street. The Quincy Homestead was acclaimed as the grandest local estate in the 17th and 18th centuries. The house represents the evolution of over 300 years of American architecture. It combines Colonial, Georgian and Victorian design. It is a rare example in which elements of a 17th-century building are still clearly visible although having been surrounded by later styles.
The Quincys were one of the leading families of Massachusetts. Their progeny include President John Quincy Adams, Abigail Adams and Doctor Oliver Wendell Holmes. It became a meeting place for many patriots including John Adams, Josiah Quincy, Ben Franklin and John Hancock. It was the childhood home of Dorothy Quincy Hancock, wife of John Hancock, first signer of the Declaration of Independence, President of the Second Continental Congress and the first governor of the Commonwealth.
The property includes a beautiful formal garden, herb garden and a variety of trees and shrubbery. The property is owned by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and operated by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of Massachusetts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
