In 1720 John Adams' father, "Deacon" John Adams, purchased this house. It is where in 1735 young John was born. John became the 2nd President of the United States of America. The birthplace remained in the possession of the Adams family until 1940, when they deeded it to the city of Quincy. The saltbox house was a style common in New England before 1830.

The house is now part of the Adams National Historical Park.
