A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words
Do you love to take photos? Do you enjoy posting on social media? Or would you simply like to help us preserve Ada history?

The village is undergoing significant change and will continue to grow. If you take any photos of the changes, consider sharing a copy with AHS and we will add them to our community archives. Buildings coming down and going up, you and friends enjoying new amenities or sites in the village, even favorite photos of the last few decades in Ada, digital or printed photos. Please drop by the museum, email, post to our Facebook, even mail to the museum–whatever it takes!

For future generations to know Ada as we experience it, it needs to be documented. And a picture is worth a thousand words.2017 Quilt Show2


Change Brings Opportunity

The spirit of growth is all around Ada.  AHS too is taking part. But our biggest project is still to come. AHS maintains the community’s archives and historic collections. The collections are in desperate need of space for proper storage and processing. And so, AHS is working toward making that dream a reality. Be on the lookout soon for opportunities to support a museum expansion project so important to our preserving our community’s story.
