A History of The Area

Houses for Sale Ada MI

ada michigan realtors

Ada Township is a general law Township located in Kent County. As with many of Michigan, and Kent County’s townships, Ada has a rich history. It began as a fur trading post in the 18th century, yet as the 20th century came into fruition, so did the retail and residential developments in the area. Today, it operates as one of Grand Rapids’ bedroom communities. Incidentally, it was Kent County’s first official settlement.

Ada County remains rich with history, and a real sense of communal spirit. Perhaps this can be traced back to its pioneer roots as the area’s first settlement, or in its artifacts that still stand today. For instance, locals can marvel at the iconic Ada covered bridge. It was first built in 1867, however, a 1979 fire led it to be refurbished and restored. Today, it is one of the few covered bridges left standing in Michigan.

Today, Ada Township exists in 37 square miles and is home to more than 13,000 residents. While the number of inhabitants might seem relatively low, make no mistake, Ada has 100 businesses, offering plenty of job opportunities to its residents. It comes as no surprise that homes for sale in Ada Michigan are steadily sought after. Ada offers a slice of small-town America, yet only exists 13 minutes east of downtown Grand Rapids. As a result, commuting from locale to locale is a breeze.
