McAdams (also known as Montour No. 9) is an unincorporated community in Robinson Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania, United States.[1] McAdams is located at the intersection of Pennsylvania Route 980 and North Branch Road 2.2 miles (3.5 km) west-northwest of McDonald.[2] The community is a coal town which was the site of the Pittsburgh Coal Company's Montour No. 9 mine, which closed in 1954. The Montour Trail passes through the community, as did a branch of the Montour Railroad during the mine's operation.[3]
