Welcome

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.

We never knew that we would need the services of Adams Funeral Home so soon after my mother's death. However, on May 28, 2021, we needed their services again. Just like before, they went above and beyond to help us during this difficult time. When we went to the private viewing, it was very difficult. Lisa and Johnny were right there with us. Johnny asked if he could pray for us and we said yes. Lisa and Johnny will never know how much it meant to us to have their love and support during this difficult time. Thank you to the staff for the excellent care they provided to us. May God bless you all.
