This is a private association church which appreciates donations for admission. Docents show the Adams and Quincy pews and explain the church's history. In the basement is where John and John Qunicy Adams and their wives are interred; be sure to visit it.

One of the few places where you can enter the crypt of an ex-president and founding father. The guide provided a good history of the Church and the Adamses.

The United First Parish Church in Quincy, MA is the final resting place of John and John Quincy Adams and their wives. The staff is very knowledgeable on the history of the church and the Adams. The tour is free but donations are appreciated.
