Welcome to Adams MN!

Adams, MN is a vibrant community of 800 people on the prairie just 5 miles north of the Minnesota-Iowa state line and about 15 miles southeast of Austin, MN in Mower County. Adams, is located about 30 miles southwest of Rochester, MN and 100 miles south of Minneapolis-St.Paul.

This site is a growing collection of information of organizations, businesses and people that make up Adams, MN. Adams is on the Shooting Star Scenic Byway (MN Hwy 56 mile post 1-30) with its accompanying 20+ mile bicycle & hiking trail, the Shooting Star Recreational Trail, which mostly follows the abondoned 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 in 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 conversation of the area native flora and fauna.
