Founded in 1797, Adams County has a population of 28,550 and is located in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Ohio. It is bounded on the south side by the Ohio River and traversed in the north by Route 32, the main east/west four lane highway in southern Ohio. Besides it’s natural beauty Adams County is noted for its abundant resources including fertile farmland, forests, wildlife, and limestone deposits. Agriculture is an important part of the county economy. While the county embraces the growing economy of modern day it maintains the rustic atmosphere where neighbors care about neighbors, and the residents are proud to claim Adams County as their home.
