Adams County may be a small county, with only about 4,000 residents, but it harnesses an immense creative energy that defines this community.

Fueled by cultural experiences, outdoor recreational activities, diverse healthcare options, a top-notch destination school, and enthusiastic people this community creates opportunities for entrepreneurs, visitors, alumni, artists and retirees.

In the center of a “triangle of opportunity” (Omaha, Nebraska; Kansas City, Missouri; and Des Moines, Iowa) you can work, raise a family, or retire in a beautiful, rural setting while having 3 Metros within a 1 ½ to 2-hour drive with malls, theater, and airports that reach the world.

The creative energy and great leadership of the community bring experiences beyond expectations. Peruse this website or visit one of our three Facebook pages to learn more.

See you soon in Adams County, Iowa!

“In big cities, you just never get out and know your neighbors, and here you do. The community does so much in terms of development and to keep it alive. It doesn’t feel like a small place. There are just so many opportunities here.”

Dr. Ashley Neils

Dr. Neils moved to Corning, the county seat community, first in a temporary role with Catholic Health Initiatives Mercy Corning before deciding on a permanent career and family move to the area.
