Built in 1685, the Abigail Adams Birthplace was home to this exceptional woman for the first twenty years of her life until she married John Adams in 1764. It has survived two relocations and restoration work was recently completed. The birthplace is maintained by the Abigail Adams Historical Society and open for tours the second Sunday of the month from May to November.
