Adams Land Co. moves to new offices
Adams Land Company has moved its corporate offices to the Adams' Estate located on old Highway 77, Third Street,Leachville. The former home of Myrna and the late Charles "Boe" Adams has been converted into offices for all of the staff. The dining room made a perfect board room complete with phones for conference calls. An area off the kitchen makes a great gathering room for the growers to stop by and have coffee. The offices are opened early by security officers so the farmers can gather and enjoy coffee before starting their day's work.
"Boe (Charles Adams) always provided room at the former office for the farmers to come by and conference," Sandra Kennett, corporate secretary and business manager, said.
The former offices were located in the facility next to Adams' Gin.
Converting the home into the office space included some renovation of rooms,and additional wiring to provide the technology needed for the offices and keep the new offices directly connected to the gin.
Sandra said everyone seems to be enjoying the new location with the beautiful view of the gardens.
Signs have been placed around to direct visitors to the offices and more are on order. The front gates are open and visitors will be using the front door to enter the offices.
A large reception desk is located just inside the entrance with offices located on both the east and west area of the facility. The large library is now the office of Ed Adams, president of the company. Misty Adams serves as receptionist and assistant LSA. Pat Lane is the LSA Director. Shirley Roe serves as secretary. The offices of Tina Adams, Scott Adams and Eddie Wayne Adams will be located on the east end of the facility. The CPA who visits several times a year also has her own office space.
"It is so pleasant here, we just love it," Kennett said.
Kennett said once the move is complete, they hope to have an open house and invite the public out to tour the new offices.
They also plan to have the Christmas lights display for people to enjoy and open the gardens for special occasions for visitors to walk around and enjoy.
