Adams is a rural unincorporated community in eastern Texas County, Oklahoma, United States. It is about 20 miles (32 km) east-northeast of the county seat, Guymon, Oklahoma. The community is six miles NNE of Optima Lake. The post office opened June 14, 1930. The community was named for Jesse L. Adams, engineer for the Rock Island Railroad.
It is the site of the Adams Woodframe Grain Elevator, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The community and its elevator were both established in 1926. The elevator has been unusable since the 1980s, and is now condemned because of its danger of collapse.
