Quincy Historical Society
Founded in 1893 by local citizens led by Charles Francis Adams, Jr., Quincy Historical Society is dedicated to preserving and promoting knowledge about the full range of Quincy history. It remains a community-based organization even as it deals with topics of national and international, as well as local, interest.
At its home in the Adams Academy Building, the Society maintains collections of historical archives and artifacts. Its museum and library are open to the public year-round. It offers a variety of publications and programs for the general public and provides instruction on local history in area schools.
