A visitor to Quincy in 1902 said it best: "I am a visitor in Quincy now, but it was once my home. I love it still. I love it for its magnificent situation, for its broad regular streets, for its many tasteful homes, for its grace and beauty, for its activity and life, and for it's big-hearted, genial people." and of the parks: "Oh the river, the river, the beautiful river. . . We walked among the flowers, along the lawns, and reveled in the beauties of Riverview awhile, then came away with our hearts lifted up and made purer, and better, and kinder and more loving." J.R.L. Clarkson, Quincy Daily Journal, May 27 1902, p. 5.

Until I experienced driving down Maine Street under the wonderful canopy of trees or through the Historic District with beautiful homes, I never knew a town could offer so much beauty. A person can't keep from smiling and feeling peaceful as they drive through Quincy.

Having traveled the world and all 50 states, it is amazing the beauty our historic districts have.

I have lived here all my life. I have traveled all the lower 48 and a lot of Canada, and some of Mexico, and I must say come to Quincy and you will agree we have it all!
