Abigail Adams Historical Society

The Abigail Adams

Historical Society is Founded

At its location on Bridge street in North Weymouth, through the years the birthplace was occupied by various tenants until 1947 when the land and the building was acquired by the federal government in order to build federal housing.  All of the farm’s buildings were marked for demolition.  At this point, a small group of Weymouth residents, aware of the historic value of the birthplace, began strenuous efforts to save it.  A citizen’s group was incorporated and the building was moved without delay.  The Abigail Adams Historical Society now came into being.
