Adams Minnesota Community Guide


Location:
Adams Minnesota Population Sign Location of Adams Minnesota

Adams Minnesota is a vibrant community of 800 people on the prairie just 5 miles north of the Minnesota-Iowa state line and about 14 miles east of Austin, MN in Mower County. The city is 12 miles off Interstate 90 southwest of Rochester, MN and only about 100 mi south of the Twin Cities - Minneapolis & St. Paul.

Adams is on the Shooting Star Scenic Byway (MN Hwy 56, mile posts 1-30) with its accompanying 20+ mile bicycle & hiking trail, the Shooting Star Recreational Trail, which mostly follows abandoned railroad tracks adjacent to Hwy 56. Slow down and enjoy the vestiges of the native tall-grass prairie flowers, grasses, and herbs the pioneers encountered a hundred years ago when they settled this area.

Adams is one of four cities cooperating in an unusual joint-powers multi-community entity called Prairie Visions. This organization has been very active in encouraging the construction of the recreational trail, the scenic byway designation and in conservation of the area native flora and fauna.

History:

The village of Adams was platted on January 30, 1868 by Selah Chamberlain. A two-room public school was built in 1869 and was later expanded to four rooms. The village was officially incorporated on March 2, 1887. A water works system was installed in the summer of 1897. A volunteer fire department was established as Adams Hose Co. No. 1 in 1898. A sewage system was installed in 1902. A Catholic school was built in 1903 and roughly half of the public school students started attending there, greatly relieving overcrowding. The sewage system was updated in 1958. The town is in the Southland school district (which includes Southland High School), and is home to the varsity fields for the teams.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

ADAMS Township was organized in May 1858. Its city of the same name in section 11 was platted by Selah Chamberlain on January 30, 1868, and was incorporated as a village February 17, 1887. This name is borne by counties in nine states of the Union and by villages and townships in 14 states, mostly in honor of John Adams, the second president of the United States, 1797-1801, and his son, John Quincy Adams, the sixth president, 1825-29. The first postal service was provided in 1859 from the farm home of John Ingens; the post office was established in 1861 with Harold M. F. Ingens, postmaster; it had a station of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad.
