College and practice of law

He graduated from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island in 1788, where he studied law. He was admitted to the Massachusetts bar, and began the practice of the law in Uxbridge, Massachusetts.

Political career

He was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 1809, later winning election to the Massachusetts Senate in 1814 through 1815. In 1816, he was elected to the United States House of Representatives from Massachusetts, serving in that body until 1821. He was then reelected to the Massachusetts State Senate, and served there through 1825.

Death and afterwards

He died in Uxbridge in 1837. The Benjamin Adams House is on the National Register of Historic Places in Uxbridge. The house is located at 85 North Main Street, near the "Uxbridge Common Historic District". Benjamin Adams is buried in the Prospect Hill Cemetery, next to the historic Capron Mill in downtown Uxbridge. Another elected Congressman is buried there, Phineas Bruce, as well as a Medal of Honor recipient from this town, Corporal Edward Sullivan. Benjamin Adams would have seen the early history and successes of the adjacent Capron Mill, and the beginnings of American industrialization which occurred there. On July 21, 2007, the historic Capron Mill, later known as the Bernat Mill, was burned in a spectacular ten-alarm fire. A housing development and street there is named in his honor today.
