All spruced up, Abigail Adams’s birthplace ready to reopen

WEYMOUTH — It’s been cut in half and moved twice — once pulled by oxen — threatened with demolition, and chewed by termites. But on June 30, a newly renovated Abigail Adams birthplace will reopen to the public, whole and in better shape than it’s been in years.

And for the first time in its 328-year history, the building will have heating and air conditioning, making it possible for the Abigail Adams Historical Society to hold programs there year-round.
