Enduring Legacy: Four Generations of the Adams Family, produced for Adams National Historical Park, chronicles four generations and 200 years of the Adams family beginning with President John Adams and his wife Abigail and continuing through the pivotal events in the lives of President John Quincy Adams, grandson Charles Francis Adams and great-grandson Henry Adams.

The Adams family's sense of honesty, morality, public service, and sacrifice fostered generations of political leaders, and created one of the most important political dynasties in the United States. It is a story of service and sacrifice that profoundly shaped the nation's history.

Enduring Legacy is narrated by Laura Linney, also the voice of Abigail, and features the voices of Tom Hanks, Paul Giamatti, Edward James Olmos, and Edward Herrman.

This 26-minute film is shown at the park Visitor Center. During the 2024 summer season, the film is shown every hour on the hour, with the first showing at 9:00 am and the final showing at 4:00 pm.
