Now home to the Quincy Historical Society whose museum showcases the city’s history from Native American times up through the early 21st century and archives are a major resource for information on local and area history.

Historic Preservation work has recently been completed. The museum is open to the public for tours at 11am and 2pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
