Featured Facts

Massachusetts’ own John Adams followed Virginian George Washington as President of the United States in 1797.  Despite being a one-term President, he served his country with distinction.

Because of his commitment to establishing and strengthening the country’s navy, Adams is sometimes referred to as the “Father of the Navy.”  He was the first President to live in the new Executive Mansion, later called the White House.  He was also the father of the sixth American President, John Quincy Adams.

His loving relationship with his wife, Abigail, has been well-researched from the many letters shared between the two of them.  Over 1,000 of these letters have been preserved.  Together, they witnessed many historical events in the formation of their young nation.

Adams death occurred on July 4, 1826, on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.  His political rival, chief writer of the Declaration, and America’s third President, Thomas Jefferson, also died on the same day.
