Ada was named for Ada Payne, who married Nelson DeNeale, shte son of area landowner, George DeNeale, in the 1890’s. Ada is located in the Dixon’s Valley at the intersection of Ada and Cresthill Roads. St. Andrew’s Church on the hill, which overlooks the area was built in 1922. The church started as an Episcopal Mission in 1905.
One of the town’s unique features is Moore’s Mill which was a rare electrical mill operated in the 1930s. A small store is located across from the church. Peach orchards and other orchards still abound around the village perimeter.
