Ada Current is a production of the Ada Historical Society where we preserve, share and celebrate the unique history of Ada, Michigan. Download the flyer for the program.
Over the years, we have collected oral stories from families who called Ada home. They ran through the dusty streets and raced down Ada Drive on their sleds. They swam above the dam and cleaned up just in time for church at Ada Congregational. And they worked hard, on the farms and in the local shops in town until Saturday night when they danced til dawn at the Ada Hotel.
Listen in on their stories, and hear current reflections about Ada today through featured conversations with special guests.
