... at this Adam's family home. John Adams was born here, his son, John Quincey Adams next door where John built his house. Then they moved a short distance to Peace Fields where the family lived until 1929. J. Adams is one of the most prominent men in the history of American independence. And a wonderful story. This home on the outskirts of Boston is so closed in by the urban sprawl that it is hard to appreciate the house. Still worthwhile.
