Quincy is home to 88,000 people, beautiful shoreline neighborhoods, and the very first Dunkin Donuts. John Adams, the second president of the United States and the first Vice President of the United States, and his wife Abigail Adams, were both from Quincy. The city includes Wollaston Beach, which is the largest beach on Boston Harbor, as well as several small islands and almost 2,500 acres of wilderness within the Blue Hills Reservation. Though it now boasts a strong economic base in financial services and the headquarters of such corporate powerhouses as Stop ‘n Shop and Arbella Mutual, early in its history its economy was based in its granite quarries and shipbuilding yards.
Quincy has an impressive list of native sons. In addition to President John Adams, his son, John Quincy Adams, the sixth president was born in Quincy – as was John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress. Others born in Quincy include surf guitar pioneer Dick Dale, author John Cheever, actress Lee Remick, and hotelier Howard Johnson.

With railroads, Quincy developed as a feeder suburb to Boston. Granite quarries and shipbuilding provides much of the local industry for many years.
