WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) – Abigail Adams’ birthplace in Massachusetts has reopened to the public after being closed for two years for major structural renovations.
The reopening Sunday of the Weymouth home built in 1685 marks a new chapter in the Abigail Adams Historical Society’s mission to spread the story of the wife of the nation’s second president and mother of the sixth.
The society plans to highlight her focus on education as well as “key and little-known facts of Adams’ life and times.”
With the addition of heat and air conditioning, programs will be held year-round.
Mary Pap, who lives nearby, visited the home with her husband and four children.
She tells The Patriot Ledger (
