United First Parish Church

The bell tower of this National Historic Landmark in Quincy Center was recently restored.  This church building is considered to be one of the finest standing Greek Revival church buildings in New England.  It was designed by noted architect Alexander Parris, who also designed Quincy Market in nearby Boston.  Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams are buried here with their wives.  This magnificent building was made of Quincy granite and completed in 1828.

I also included a little spring green for "Earth Day".  Go outside and enjoy!
