With over a century of service to the community, Adams Funeral Home got its start in 1900 in Hiddenite where Richard A. Adams sold furniture, coffins and caskets. In the early 1900's, Adams moved the business to Taylorsville and named it R.A. Adams Furniture, Coffins and Caskets.
Adams' son Escar Adams took over the business in 1921 and continued its operation until 1935 when he purchased the coffins and caskets department and founded the first funeral home in Alexander County.
The Adams Funeral Home was first located on Second Street SW in Taylorsville, about a block south of the present funeral home. In 1942, the facility was moved to the old Campbell house. In 1958, it was moved to the present site on the corner of Main Avenue Drive and Highway 16 South.
Locally owned and operated by your family, friends, and neighbors, Adams Funeral Home continues to promote the traditions that have served families so well in their time of need.

Thank you for the very professional way in which you served our family during our bereavement period of the death of my husband Wayne Smith. You made everything so easy and timely and it wouldn’t have gone so smoothly without your guidance.
