Merrymount is a community of Quincy located next to the Wollaston section, and borders Adams Shore on the other side. Merrymount was origanally known as Mount Wollaston. Thomas Morton and Captain Wollaston had left the Plymouth Colony with a group of Colonists, and made their way to Merrymount. About a year later, Captain Wollaston and most of the Colonists left the area. Thomas Morton remaind and renamed the area Mare Mount, which later became Merrymount.
Mount Wollaston is now the name of Quincy's largest cemetery, located in Merrymount.
