The United First Parish Church in Quincy, MA is the final resting place of John and John Quincy Adams and their wives. The staff is very knowledgeable on the history of the church and the Adams. The tour is free but donations are appreciated.

My sister and I were fairly surprised by our visit to this church - in a good way. Our tour guide was a member of the Unitarian congregation and thus shared about the church's history and some of its present story. The sanctuary is beautiful,...More
