The Milwaukee, Sparta & North Western Railway, a forerunner to the Chicago and North Western (C&NW), completed a rail line through Adams in 1911. Union Pacific merged with the C&NW in 1995.

Adams is celebrating their 100 year anniversary this year, and it revolves around the railroad coming to town. To this day, the railroad is a big part of our community. The Employee Clubs contribute to local organizations and events. They bring in the Safety Train almost every year to educate the public, and the railroad is significant to our area economic development.
