Samuel Adams Heritage Society

About this website

This Project began in 2002 when a group of history enthusiasts with common interest in American Revolution history decided to join efforts to establish a website that could create a comprehensive picture of Samuel Adams in a format that meets the realities of the digital information edge. We realized that to be successful this site had to be interesting to both beginners and enthusiasts alike. And thus began the Samuel Adams Heritage Project. Over few years the group grew from just few people to a whole team of contributors.

The Mission

The mission of this project is not simply to preserve the legacy and the history of the legendary American patriot. We want to re-tell his story in such a way that will engage and inspire readers learn more and get involved in doing their own research and critical thinking.

But first we have to learn the facts. Therefore we pledge to provide balanced and accurate historic facts that examine Adams’s historic figure from all angles. We also would like to try and draw a more personal portrait of the Boston’s famous street leader.


On the pages of this site will try uncover new facts, documents, research and new ideas about the life of “the Last Puritan” and other figures of American Revolution. No topic is too small, too large or too controversial.

We hope that by doing this we can engage those readers who may not have been deeply involved with history, and help to gain better understanding and become experts on the subject. What better way is there to promote history educational on all levels of learning?

Contact information

We welcome contributions for anyone interested in the topic regardless of their political views or affiliations and the level of knowledge. Please email your ideas or questions to adamshistoricalsociety@gmail.com
