Abigail Adams Birthplace
180 Norton Street,
No. Weymouth, Mass.
Built circa 1685, this two-story, six-room saltbox was Abigail Adams’s home from the time of her birth in 1744 until 1764, when she married John Adams in the front parlor. Following her marriage, Adams frequently returned to visit her parents, who are buried in the historic North Weymouth Cemetery bordering the house. The Birthplace survived two relocations and recently underwent an extensive two-year renovation. Programs and tours are now offered year-round, and a number of activities are being planned for the weekend of October 24, 2014, to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Abigail and John Adams’s marriage.
