Peacefield (John Adams home in Quincy) Quincy, Massachusetts. John and Abigail Adams lived here many years, and so did many descendants. The family kept everything just as it was until it was presented to the Park Service, and the contents are preserved intact to this day. That seems to be very rare for historic houses! The outside still looks just as it did in old pictures.
Great news! Thank you Gov. Patrick for recognizing dogs are individuals and making it illegal to regulate dogs with Breed Specific Legislation in Massachusetts! INCREDIBLE news! Massachusetts Governor Patrick signed a bill into law today that makes regulating dogs by breed illegal. BSL...Illegal! And more. This progressive piece of legislation calls for spay/neuter funds and much more !
