 Adams was founded in 1912 when the North Western Railroad arrived. We were a railroad terminal, located halfway between Chicago and the Twin cities. Railroad jobs brought in people and businesses. In just a few years Adams became so large the needs for services became apparent and therefore the residents voted to become a Village. As the years went on the Village’s needs grew even greater and in 1926 the Village became a City.

Since our origination we have been a Community of Progress. As we look into the future we have our eyes set on redevelopment. We are looking forward to reshaping our Main Street corridor to its highest and best form and capturing the full potential of Downtown as a community and commercial attraction.
