Quincy was incorporated as part of Dorchester in 1630.

Starting in 1708, the modern border of Quincy first took shape as the North Precinct of Braintree. After the American Revolution, Quincy was officially incorporated as a separate town named for John Quincy in 1792, and was made an official city in 1888. In 1845 the Old Colony Railroad opened; the Massachusetts Historical Commission stated that the railroad was "the beginning of a trend toward suburbanization."

Quincy's population grew by over 50 percent during the 1920s.
