Thursday is "This Old House" Day

[click image to enlarge]

The Beale-Rice at 181 Adams Street, is one of the grandest Federal residences in the city of Quincy. Its historical and architectural integrity merits it to be recommended for listing in the National Register of Historic Places not only for its antiquity and its excellent condition, but also as an fine example of a high style Federal residence of the 1790s which is still sited within its landscaped country setting complete with carriage house.

I plan to continue the Thursday posting of architectural examples from around Quincy, in tribute to the public television show "This Old House."

I used to watch that show a lot ..
when you say pay homage do you mean it does not exist anymore?..
I love visiting houses exterior and interior!!

Hi, I am a Beal descendant. This is my 4x great-grandfather's house! I had no idea it even existed. If you have more photos of this house, I would be greatly interested.
