Ada, Michigan

49301

Ada, Michigan  

Ada is located in Ada Township, approximately 6 miles east of Grand Rapids in central Kent County. This picturesque town with its country charm is located at the mouth of the Thornapple River flowing into the Grand.   It contains a downtown area and adjacent mall, accented by colonial and country style buildings and small shops.   As such, it is considered to be an ideal commuter suburb to the greater Grand Rapids area.

Historically, this town 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.
