In preparation for the 400th anniversary of Quincy's settlement in 2025, we will look back on how Quincy celebrated its 300th anniversary in 1925.  We will walk part of the tour route in the shipyard area described in the Historical Guide prepared for the celebration to see what was considered important back then and how things have changed in the last 100 years.  The tour will include a description of how Quincy granite was quarried to build King's Chapel.  Co-sponsored by the Quincy Quarry and Granite Workers Museum.  Meet at the parking lot at the intersection of W. Howard St.
