Overview


Quincy is known as the "City of Presidents" and the "Granite City." It is also known for its waterfront and the Fore River Shipyard. The city produced a president of the Continental Congress and two presidents of the United States. Quincy's granite was used to build the Bunker Hill Monument, Minot Lighthouse, and other cherished buildings around the country. The city's waterfront meanders for 27 miles, and its Fore River Shipyard is famous for manufacturing World War I and II warships. Residents proudly refer to Quincy as home. Quincy explores the many facets of Quincy life as they were uniquely expressed in an early-20th-century phenomenon: the postcard.
