In 1825 the state of Illinois sent commissioners to the newly created County of Adams to locate a county seat.  The commissioners drove a stake into the public square (John’s Square) and named the settlement Quincy in honor of the newly-elected U.S. President, John Quincy Adams. John's Square became known as Washington Park in 1857 and was the site of Quincy's Lincoln-Douglas debate the following year

     Hi my name is Debbie Gibson. I am your Adams County Illinois Host. I was born in Pike county, Mo., raised in Winfield, Lincoln county, Mo., and moved to Adams county when I was 15. I lived in Payson until I was about 18 and moved to Quincy. Have been here ever since. I love the history of this town. I hope to do a great job as your host.
