Quincy House, 20 Muirhead St., Quincy, Mass.

Join Nancy Carlisle, senior curator of collections for Historic New England, on an in-depth tour of Quincy House and see the family's collection up close. Built as a country estate in 1770, Quincy House, a National Historic Landmark, was originally a 250-acre parcel of land surrounded by fields and pastures overlooking Quincy Bay. For generations, the Quincys, like their relatives the Adamses, played important roles in the social and political life of Massachusetts.

In the nineteenth century, Eliza Susan Quincy collected extensive information about her family and home. She kept journals and persuaded relatives to return heirlooms so that the house would remain a repository of Quincy family history. See recent changes to the interiors resulting from the study of Eliza Susan's materials.
