Adamsville was founded in 1772 on the banks of the Cholotka River. It was named for Fort Adams, which was named after explorer Henry Adams. The city quickly grew as it was the uppermost navigable city on the river upstream from Lake Fisher. In 1802, it was named the state capital of Ogdalen, replacing Morganton. After slavery was abolished, it became the most industrialized city in the northeast.

Today, it is a major center for the music industry, especially country and hip-hop.

Major corporations headquartered in or near the city include Archantana Records, Cybus, Musician's Center, Myriad Health, and Winstons.
