    Abigail Adams and John Quincy statue is a monument honoring Abigail Adams – First Lady, adviser of the second president John Adams, and the mother of the sixth president John Quincy Adams, who is also commemorated in this monument as a child.
    Created by Lloyd Lillie and dedicated in 1997, the bronze statue depicts Abigail Adams, who is considered as a founder of the US, with her hand on her son’s shoulder, while the president to be is holding a book, both of them are looking ahead.
    The statue used to be located next to the Church of Presidents, where Adams’ family is buried, symbolizes the future to come. Due to renovations at Hancock Meetinghouse, the statue was supposed to get relocated to Adams National Historical Park in 2018, but eventually remained in storage till these days.
