Through 2026, Adams County will commemorate the 250th anniversary of the United States of America by highlighting our community’s contributions to our nation’s history, as well as events, people and places that have shaped our local heritage.
In 2022, an official Adams County Commission was formed to steer local efforts to commemorate the 250th anniversary in our community.
The Adams County Commission:
*Adams County’s Liaison to the American250PA County Advisory Committee
Engaging the Adams County community honor the people and events that shaped our nation, to support initiatives that attract visitors, and to provide a lasting economic impact while preserving our local legacy for future generations.
In order to help Adams County achieve these objectives, the Commission has created subcommittees to assist the Commission with a variety of efforts. These subcommittees include events, marketing, fundraising, county heritage and civic engagement.
