    Adams Reviews

    Adams is a close knit and positive community. There is not a lot of diversity, however, the people are kind and trustworthy. I would like to see more businesses thrive. It's a great place to raise my family.
    Review Adams
    Small town living. Not much of a variety of anything. Normal things that are seen in Every Town America. McDonald's Subway, gas stations, Dollar General, Family Dollar.
    Small towns that are made up of people that have been there for generations are a great place to raise your kids and there is definitely a sense of community; however, they store owners are more likely to higher kids that they are more familiar with.
