Eugene M. Adams was born August 29, 1855, on a farm in Farmersville, where he lived until middle life when he came to this village and bought the Jones Mill property south of the Pennsylvania depot. He opened a feed store and later put in a grist mill, and within a very few years had the largest individual business in town, employed over thirty men regularly had a lumber yard, saw and planing mill, coal trestle, blacksmith shop, grocery and hardware store, flour mill, and sold farm machinery, paint, builders’ supplies, etc., dealt in timber tracts, built several residences, at one time owned the Globe Hotel and many other properties, doing a business of over $75,000 per annum. The south-west end of the village was for years called "Adamsville" because of his business activities there. He was village trustee, member of the school board, member and trustee of the Baptist church, vice-president of the Union National Bank, member of the Soldiers’ monument Committee, president of the Fair Association, and President of the Peoples National Bank. His health broke down under the stress of business and care, and with the failure of the Peoples bank he became financially involved and lost the greater part of his large property. He has since bought a little store on Church street which he now conducts.
