Adamsville, gathered around a convergence of country roads on the Massachusetts–Rhode Island border, is a pretty cluster of shingled and clapboarded buildings. Some of them have been converted into the boutique sort of shop. It is dominated by the Abraham Manchester General Store (c. 1860[?], now a restaurant with a disruptive parking lot) east of the T-intersection where Main Street becomes Adamsville Road. Fine dressed masonry walls, doubtless all the work of the same local mason, line the roads around this intersection.
