Abigail Adams was the second First Lady of the United States and the mother of the 6th President. She was a close advisor of both her husband and son and had a significant influence on American politics. She was an advocate for women’s rights, an opponent of slavery, and considered as a Founder of the United States.
Her home in Massachusetts, where she was born and lived for 20 years, is a symbol of Adams’ education and ideals that later would be reflected on her contribution to the nation.
The 1685 restored house and the periodical furnishing will give you a new perspective on the 18th-century way of life, as well as a better understanding of the journey of the First Lady to become a national treasure.
Visitors can take the ‘behind the scenes’ tour and participate in special events, such as ‘Tea with Mrs. Adams’, ‘Women’s History Month Panel’, and the Abigail Adams Historical Society Annual Meeting and Dinner.
