Located in west central Illinois, Adams County provides citizens with opportunity, diversity, and quality.  Most of the residents live in or near the City of Quincy, while most of the land is used for agriculture.  The county is on the banks of the Mississippi River, which provides transportation and recreation.

    Quincy is the regional hub for medical services, manufacturing, entertainment, and education.  As the largest city within a 100 miles, Quincy provides the entire county with some of the amenities of larger cities.  And several smaller communities compliment Quincy by offering superb quality of life in rural settings.


The courthouse was constructed in 1950, but an extensive renovation project was completed in 1997.

Visitors to the east side of the building must pass through a security checkpoint and abide by certain rules.  Cell phones are not allowed.

In addition to several offices, there are eight courtrooms, backup 9-1-1 Center and a 100-bed jail in the building.

The Health Department is located just one block from the courthouse in downtown Quincy.  This building was built in 2009.  The Ambulance Department has an administrative office in this building also.

The Quincy / Adams County 9-1-1 Center began operations in a new facility in March, 2007.  The Emergency Management office is located here along with the Emergency Operations Center.
The Juvenile Detention Center was built in 2000.  The Juvenile Detention Facility provides detention services and behavioral programming for troubled youth from ages ten through seventeen. This is a secure custody facility with a maximum rated capacity of 30. 

The Highway Department moved from 36th and Broadway to 101 N 54th St in 1986.
