Houghs Neck

Houghs Neck is a small, waterfront neighborhood in Quincy that sits on a peninsula surrounded by Quincy Bay, Hingham Bay, and Rock Island Cove. The area is rich in history and was named for Atherton Hough, the mayor of Boston, England, who was granted the land in 1636 as both a farm and orchard. in 1778, founding father and future president, John Adams, departed for a diplomatic trip to France from Houghs Neck instead of Boston to evade capture by the British. Today locals refer to the community as “The Neck” or “God’s Country” and label residents as “Neckahs.” The close proximity of the water offers an ocean lifestyle as well as a tight-knit community where many residents have lived for years. The housing stock includes a wide variety of options from small cottages to newer construction right on the water. Nut Island, a national park at the tip of the neck, is a favorite of locals for strolling the walkway while enjoying views of Squantum, Wollaston Beach, Boston and Georges Island.

Houghs Neck extends from Newton Street up to Nut Island at the very end of the peninsula. It borders Perry Beach running along Manet Avenue as well as Edgewater Drive.  Adjacent neighborhoods include Adams Shore and Germantown.
