Quincy Preserves conducts two annual architectural tours — The Behind Closed Doors Tour and the Spring Homes Tour. In addition to our popular tours, Quincy Preserves also hosts several annual gatherings and events for both members and the public. Our annual membership dinner is the 3rd Tuesday of each March. On the third Thursday of June, we have our annual membership picnic at one of the many historic public parks in Quincy.
