This mansion, which President John Adams named “Peacefield” and generations of Adames referred to as the “Old House,” was built in 1731 and became the residence of the Adams family for four generations (from 1788 to 1927). It was home to Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams; First Ladies Abigail and Louisa Catherine Adams; Civil War Minister to Great Britain Charles Francis Adams; and literary historians Henry and Brooks Adams.

Inside the Old House is a vast collection of original artifacts. Adjacent to the house is the Stone Library, built in 1873. It contains more than 14,000 books that belonged to the Adamses. Following a tour, you may wish to stroll the Old House grounds, which include a historic orchard and an 18th-century style formal garden, containing thousands of annual and perennial flowers.
