Adams Shore

Adams Shore is a waterfront neighborhood in Quincy situated on land that was formerly owned by the Adams family, including both John Adams and John Quincy Adams. The community originated as a resort area in the 1890s for wealthy residents looking to escape the city. As Cape Cod became a popular summer destination, Adams Shore evolved into more of a year-round residential enclave of single-family homes. Shellton Road, one of its signature streets, features a mix of historic homes and newer construction facing the water, including unobstructed views of the bay. Each property on Shellton Road also includes water rights. Other roads in the area are named after birds, including Plover, Pelican, and Mallard Roads. Within Quincy, the neighborhood is referred to as Quincy’s “best kept secret” because of the close-knit community and relatively affordable waterfront homes in comparison to other neighborhoods.

Adams Shore is split by Sea Street and bordered on the north by Quincy Bay; on the south by Town River Bay; on the east by Houghs Neck and on the west by the Merrymount.
