Ada is in Kent County, and in the West-Southwest Region. You can locate Ada just east of Grand Rapids between Grand Rapids and Belding along Highway 21 on the banks of the Grand River near the Thornapple River. Ada is part of the Grand Rapids-Muskegon-Holland, Michigan metro area.
The town of Ada was the site of a trading post set up by Rix Robinson from Massachusetts in 1821 - whom many consider to be the first settler to the western Michigan area. The Detroit & Milwaukee Railroad built a station here in 1853, which led to the further development and stabilization of the town during and after the lumber era.
