Quincy and its Quirky Story
The city of Quincy, MA has so many qualities that it had to have more than one nickname. It has been called the “City of Presidents”, “City of Legends” and “Birthplace of the American Dream”. Not many years ago, when the title applied, Quincy was often the “Granite City”.
The name Quincy was chosen to honor Abigail Adams’s maternal grandfather, for whom John Quincy Adams was also named.
