Covid 19 has forced the suspension of any further events this year. Hopefully 2021 will be a return to normal for us all.
Quincy Preserves conducts two annual architectural tours — The Behind Closed Doors Tour and the Spring Homes Tour and now NEW Walking Tours. In addition to our popular tours, Quincy Preserves also hosts several annual gatherings and events for both members and the public.
Our Tours help support and bolster Quincy’s unique catalog of great architecture through donations, scholarships, commercial and residential façade programs.

The Annual Membership Picnic takes place in June. The evening includes our scholarship presentation and volunteer appreciation party. The Picnic was originally planned for June 13th but due to the Covid-19 restrictions it has been postponed until September 12th
