Adams, Massachusetts

Founded in 1778 and named after Sam Adams, the Revolutionary War patriot, (not the beer!) Adams is a picturesque valley town in beautiful Berkshire County. Nestled between Mount Greylock (Massachusetts’ highest peak) on the west and by the Hoosac Range on the east. Adams is abundant in scenery and natural splendor such as the Greylock Glen, Mount Greylock State Reservation and the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail to name a few.

Adams is a great place to live and raise a family. We offer quiet and safe neighborhoods with some of the best real estate values available in the Berkshires are to be found in Adams. We offer exceptional opportunity and affordable value, such as real estate, town services, taxes, education, dining, nightlife and outdoor recreation.

Our business community offers most of the shopping and services you might need on a regular basis without the congestion and traffic of larger communities. Over the past few years, Adams has seen a significant increase in restaurants and nightlife. Adams also offers a full calendar of community events for all ages through the year. With outstanding public, private and charter schools, Adams has many educational choices for school-age children. We love our school sports in Adams, but other school activities abound to suit all manner of interests.

Adams is rich in historical places like the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace, the 1784 Quaker Meeting House and many historic buildings, including fine examples of Victorian “Painted Lady” homes.

In 2008 Adams was named to the Top 200 Towns for outdoorsmen by Outdoor Life Magazine. When in Adams, there’s lots of things to do from our many hiking trails to our historic sites, from our local shops and restaurants to nearby performance centers, Adams is wonderful place to live and to visit year-round, we hope to see you soon!

Thank you to everyone who continues to support the Adams Theater! What a great way to celebrate #artweekberkshires…take in a show 👏We have good news!

The Adams Theater Presents, Inc, a nonprofit organization created 7 months ago with the ambitious goal of presenting 30+ performances in year 2024 with a shoestring budget of $160k, has reached its Annual Fund target of $50k!

Thanks to all those who have contributed, your generous donations are helping to pay for the performing artists, 5 part-time administrative staff, marketing expense, insurance, event security, etc. etc. Without the community support, we would not have been able to bridge the budget gap between operational expenses and ticket sales.

Now it is time to join us for a show, starting this Friday May 24th!!! Check out our program at adamstheater.org/upcoming or link in bio!

I think a taste test is needed! #gelato #IceCream #SummerFun in #AdamsMAGelato Puzzler - Day One:

Gelato vs Ice Cream?

People ask me Tammie "What is Gelato and how is it different than Ice Cream?" Although they are both frozen treats, Gelato and Ice Cream are different in their characteristics to their history.

The four characteristics that set Gelato apart from Ice Cream are:
1. Ingredients
2. Fat Content
3. Air
4. Serving Temperature

These differences result in Gelato’s richer flavor and smoother texture.
Over the next five days, I will detail these four differences and talk about where these delicious frozen treats originated from.
Each day I will have a secret word of the day. Anyone who solves the word puzzle can have a chance to win a free cone or cup with two scoops of our delicious family-made Gelato.

1. Unscramble the word each day.
2. Stop down to our new take-out window this Sunday between the hours of 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. I will be open just for this event.
3. Each person who stops can get a free taste of our delicious Gelato.
