Adamsville was a name of the northeastern or northern part of the Village of Lansingburgh. Baxterville seems to have been another name for the area. A Charles Baxter lived in the Oil Mill Hill area and had been one of the opponents in 1869 of an attempt by Troy to annex Lansingburgh.

An Adamsville Community Association formed in 1925 existed until at least 1929, and opened an Adamsville Playground on Oil Mill Hill.
