Adams Grove Facts and Figures

The folks of Adams Grove have been working hard to refresh and restore Main Street. This year they finally got the funding approved to add the street pole banners and the ladies club and local Master Gardeners partnered on the beautiful plants and flowers that give the street a fresh and happy look. In 2010 zoning was approved for loft apartments above the Main Street businesses. Now residents reside along Main Street – the heart of the town.
