WPA Walking Tour – Site of the John Adams House

To count down the days to the end of summer, I will be taking you on a virtual walking tour of Arlington–the same one outlined in 1937’s The WPA Guide to Massachusetts. Each entry will include an excerpt from the book about each site visited. Hopefully this will give us a little insight as to how things have changed in the past 73 years. Perhaps someone could provide some insight as to the precise location of stop number seven.

“A marker on the Green identifies the Site of the John Adams House (1652),

which served as a hospital for the Provincial soldiers during the siege of Boston.”

Somewhere on the northeastern side of Massachusetts Avenue, at its intersection with Pleasant Street, is the site of the John Adams House (not THE John Adams). July 2, 2010.
