Adams Grove Presbyterian Church is a historic Greek Revival-style church building in rural Dallas County, Alabama, near the community of Sardis. Built in 1853, it features a distyle-in-antis type portico with box columns. No longer actively used by a church congregation, the building is now privately owned. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 5, 1986.[1]

Due to purported paranormal activity at Adams Grove, the church building and adjacent cemetery have been investigated by several ghost hunting groups. The American Ghost Hunter group from Santa Monica, California visited the site in July 2008.[2] The Southern Paranormal Researchers, based out of Montgomery, subsequently conducted a search in June 2009.[3]
