The warehouse, which housed flour from his nearby Greenfield Mills, was on the corner of the B & O Railroad and today’s Mountville Road. In 1840, the town was renamed Adamstown after the first appointed B & O railway agent, Adam Kohlenburg, who was also the first postmaster and ran a general store.

In the early 1900’s the town began to grow, with a bank, a blacksmith, garages, stores and two large grain elevators.  Electric lights were first installed in the town in 1922.
