SOUTH QUINCY
A CULTURAL MELTING POT
Welcome to South Quincy, a neighborhood in the city of Quincy, Massachusetts.
The neighborhood became populated partly because of the granite industry boom in the 1800s, at a time when landowners Charles Francis Adams, and Job Faxon divided their land into lots. The Faxon family donated land to the City of Quincy in 1888, which today comprises the Faxon Park. The South Quincy area is mostly known for the South Park, a 135-acre green public space located at 12th and Harrison Streets. The park features three shelter houses with electricity, picnic tables, drinking fountains, grills and restrooms, as well as a beautiful gazebo that is often utilized for weddings. Houses in South Quincy are usually made up of small to medium sized apartment buildings as well as some single-family homes. Most of the residences in South Quincy are historic, with corner bodegas and apartment-turned Victorian homes. The neighborhood is diverse, with a significant part of the population being of Asian, Brazilian and Arabic ancestry. So if you enjoy a cultural melting pot amidst a historical setting, South Quincy may be your style! Walk down the quaint streets of South Quincy and you'll find a plethora of little establishments like falafel stands, pizza places and independent florists. South Quincy is also home to the Quincy Adams subway station and parking facility, a major transportation South Shore Massachusetts commuters.
