From 1630 to 1854, Quincy’s most illustrious residents and civic leaders were buried here; Henry Adams, the first Adams to live in Quincy and ancestor of John Adams; Colonel John Quincy, for whom the city is named; patriot Josiah Quincy, Veterans of the Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Civil War. The memorials offer a chronicle of gravestone art from colonial winged skulls and cherubim, to Federalist classical motifs, to Quincy’s 19th century role as the national center for granite quarrying and carving.
