April 7: Behind the Scenes at the Abigail Adams Birthplace

Our structural tour of the Abigail Adams Birthplace is be a behind-the-scenes look at the ca. 1685 building’s construction, and will include the second floor and basement, which isn’t usually included on tours.

The building was home to Abigail for the first 20 years of her life and has been relocated twice.

The tour will be led by Christopher Hannan, chair of the Building Committee and a history professor at Mass Maritime. Chris will describe Abigail Adams’s life in the house (where she lived until she married John Adams there at age twenty).

The video below and these photos show the modern restoration that has been completed.

Our thanks to Michelle Marchetti Coughlin of the Abigail Adams Birthplace for making this tour possible.
