Quincy Market is a historic market complex near Faneuil Hall in downtown Boston, Massachusetts. It was constructed in 1824–26 and named in honor of Mayor Josiah Quincy, who organized its construction without any tax or debt; the market is a designated National Historic Landmark and Boston Landmark, significant as one of the largest market complexes built in the United States in the first half of the 19th century. By the time Boston was incorporated as a city in 1822, downtown commercial demand had grown beyond the capacity of Faneuil Hall. To provide an expansion of shop space Quincy Market was built, as an indoor pavilion of vendor stalls. Designed by Alexander Parris, the main building was built east of and "behind" Faneuil Hall which at the time sat next to the waterfront at the town dock. In an early example of Boston's tendency for territorial growth via landfill, part of the harbor was filled in with dirt to provide a plot of land for the market; the commercial growth spawned by the new marketplace led to the reconstruction or addition of six city streets.
From its beginning, the Market was used as a produce and foodstuff shopping center, with various grocers of such goods as eggs and bread lining its inside walls. Digging performed for expansion of the market in the late 1970s uncovered evidence of animal bones, suggesting that butchering work was done on-site. In addition, street vendors took up space outside the building in its plazas and against its outside walls; some surviving signs of early food and supplies merchants hang today in the upstairs seating hall. The market is two stories tall, 535 feet long, covers 27,000 square feet of land, its exterior is granite, with red brick interior walls, represents the first large-scale use of granite and glass in post-and-beam construction. Within, it employs innovative cast iron columns and iron tension rods; the east and west facades exhibit a strong Roman style, with strong triangular pediments and Doric columns. In contrast, the sides of the hall are more American, with rows of rectangular windows.
The building's shape is a long rectangle. On the roof are eight evenly spaced chimneys, a copper-based dome in the center of the building, which covers an open common seating area and the major side entrances; the main building is flanked on either side by 4 1⁄2-story brick and granite buildings, called the North Market and South Market. Part of the market's original development, these buildings have been more extensively altered than the main building; the entire complex was designated a National Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966. The central domed building was designated a Boston Landmark by the Boston Landmarks Commission in 1996; the North and South Market buildings are pending Boston Landmarks. In 1969, the department of Housing and Urban Development awarded the city of Boston 2 million dollars for market stabilization and restoration of roof lines and facades back to their 1826 appearance; the restoration project team included: Architectural Heritage Inc.
Roger Webb. Frederic A. Stahl, Principal in Charge. By the early 1970s, Boston's meat and produce had moved to larger, more modern facilities and Quincy Market was decaying. Using a combination of public and private funds, architectural firm Benjamin Thompson and Associates and the developer Rouse Company developed a new building form, the festival marketplace; the new Faneuil Hall Marketplace, incorporating Quincy Market, opened in 1976. In 1977, it received the Harleston Parker Medal and in 2009, the AIA's Twenty-five Year Award; the main Quincy Market building continues to be a source of food for Bostonians, though it has changed from grocery to food-stall, fast-food, restaurants. It is a busy lunchtime spot for downtown workers. In the center, surrounding the dome, is a two-story seating area. Further street vending space is available against the outside walls of the building on the south side, under a glass enclosure. Most stalls in this space sell trinkets and other curiosities. A few restaurants occupy enclosed spaces at the ends of this enclosure.
More conventional retail space is provided in the basement level. The Comedy Connection, one of Boston's two largest comedy clubs, only vacated one of the second-floor spaces, bars and restaurants occupy space on the basement levels. Flanking the main building in the marketplace are two long buildings that expand the market space for more restaurants, specialty shops, office spaces. Two further concave market buildings enclose a circular plaza at the market's east end; the open spaces at both the east and west ends of the marketplace are a common venue for various street performers, as well as street vendors. Most daytime visits to Quincy Market will encounter a large circular crowd of people standing around a juggler or other act.

Dorothy Quincy Homestead
The Dorothy Quincy Homestead is a US National Historic Landmark at 34 Butler Road in Quincy, Massachusetts. The house was built by Edmund Quincy II in 1686 who had an extensive property upon which there were multiple buildings. Today, the site consists of the Dorothy Quincy Homestead, preserved as a museum and is open to the public; the original property covered 200 acres extending from its present location to Quincy Bay and included the Dorothy Quincy House, the Josiah Quincy House, the Josiah Quincy Mansion. The Josiah Quincy Mansion, located on the property purchased by the Eastern Nazarene College in 1919, was torn down in 1969; the Quincy family was one of the leading families of Massachusetts in from the 17th century to the 19th century. Descendants included several prominent Edmund Quincys and Josiah Quincys, John Quincy Adams by virtue of his mother, American First Lady Abigail Adams, they settled in. The present Homestead was built by Edmund Quincy II, it became a meeting place for many American Revolutionary War patriots such as John Adams, Colonel John Quincy, John Hancock.
It was the childhood home of the first First Lady of Massachusetts, Dorothy Quincy Hancock Scott, wife of John Hancock. Representing the evolution of over 320 years of American architecture, the Dorothy Quincy House combines Colonial and Victorian design, it is one of the rare Massachusetts examples in which the elements of a 17th-century building are still visible although surrounded by styles. In 2005 the Quincy Homestead was designated as a National Historic Landmark; the Homestead is owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and operated by The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in a public-private partnership. In 1904, when the property was threatened by encroaching urban development, a citizen drive was established to save the mansion. Led by the Massachusetts Colonial Dames and Charles Francis Adams, Jr. the grandson of President John Quincy Adams, Quincy residents raised funds to assist the Dames in purchasing the estate and creating a distinctive house museum. Looking to the long-term protection and presentation of the property, the Colonial Dames negotiated a sale-leaseback agreement with the Commonwealth, whereby the Commonwealth accepted responsibility for capital improvements and the exterior preservation of the house, the Dames agreed to maintain the interior of the home, to beautify it with period furniture and decorative arts, to interpret its history to the public.
This relationship has continued for over a century. Since 2005, the Dorothy Quincy Homestead has undergone a comprehensive exterior renovation to restore this stately historic building to its former grandeur; the project has included painting the structure, re-glazing the windows, other major improvements.
