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.

I just have to let it be known how wonderful Adams Funeral Home and specifically, Johnny Campbell have been to us during our times of bereavement. Beginning with our mother in March of 2018, her husband 12 days later, and finally, our Dad in July of 2021, every need, every detail, was met with compassion and a willingness to make our last memories of our loved ones the best that such a sad time could be. A simple “thank you” is not enough for what the Adams family does every day…not just a job, but a ministry. May God richly bless every one who helped ease the burden of our family’s Homegoings.
The Senter and Little Family
