Adams Public School, 1900s
“ADAMS was a farm post office established June 23, 1890, with Erick T. Grove, postmaster. It was located in NE1/4 Sec. 27-157-58, Adams Twp., which was named by settlers from Adams County, Wisconsin, which was named for John Quincy Adams (1767-1848), 6th President of the United States. The postmaster’s wife, Christina, suggested the name. In 1905, the Soo Line RR founded a town site in Secs. 13 and 14-157-58, three miles to the SE, naming it Sarles, but because of duplication the Adams name was transferred to the new location. The village incorporated in 1905, the Zip Code is 58210, and a peak population 411 was reached in 1950. Neil Levang, long time guitarist with the Lawrence Welk Band, was born here.” 2

“The top 6 ancestry groups in the city are Norwegian (51.7%), Czech (17.2%), German (17.2%), Swedish (7.4%), Polish (5.4%), Scots-Irish (4.4%).” 3
