Quincy is a small unincorporated community in northwestern Hickory County, Missouri, United States. It is located on Route 83 north of U.S. Route 54. A post office and a few homes are located there. The community was platted in 1848.[1] Ramsay says it was probably named for U.S. President John Quincy Adams (1767–1848).[citation needed]
