Adamsville, Alabama Statistic: Population, Charts, Map, Steets and More

The county seat of Adamsville County, Massachusetts, is the second most populous city in New England, after Boston. Its population is 181,045. Located 40 miles west of Boston, 50 miles east of Springfield, and 40 minutes north of Providence, Adamsville is known as the "Heart of the Commonwealth" and has a heart as its official symbol. The area's growth spurted from coal mining, and by 1890, the city was thriving.

Residents of the City Center and Bessie neighborhoods most often identify as English, Scots-Irish, and German. There are also more people of British and Yugoslav ancestry than any other neighborhood in the country. While the area has a low population density, it is also home to a variety of cultural groups. Among these are the historic Adamsville Museum and Library.

Crime rates in Adamsville vary by neighborhood. While the northeast of the city has a high crime rate, the southwest has a lower rate than the rest of the city. It's difficult to compare crime rates between areas because crime is concentrated in certain blocks. However, a red area doesn't necessarily mean that a neighborhood is unsafe. If you live in a neighborhood with a high crime rate, it might be worth considering a move to a less-crime-prone part of town.

The city has a long history of immigration, and it has been home to many refugees in recent years. The city has helped resettle more than 2000 refugees from over 24 countries. Most of them come from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Somalia, Bhutan, and Afghanistan. In recent years, the population has declined mainly because of a low birth rate, which can trigger a domino effect.
