United First Parish Church Photo

Look for this building – the United First Parish Church. It’s the most prominent building in Quincy Center – you can’t miss it!

Address:

United First Parish Church
1306 Hancock Street
Quincy, MA 02169

Which Door Should I Use? 

From the front of the church, walk around to the right side of the building and look for a stairway from the sidewalk to a basement door.  It is near the traffic light and directly across from the “Quincy Market” convenience store.

What’s All the Construction About? 

The Adams Green project is transforming the section of Hancock street in front of the church into a park that will unite the “Church of the Presidents” with the Hancock Cemetery and Old City Hall. As of 6/24/2016, the street is permanently closed to cars and the traffic going around the church now flows 2 ways.

Help with book drop-offs: The ongoing Adams Green project has made street parking near the church pretty scarce.  If you are dropping off books and can’t find parking close by, please call us at 617-423-3298 and we will help you. As of June 2016, there is no street parking in front of the church, only on the side.
