A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Ada (aka 'Dakota Station') ...
Although we found mention of Ada during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ada was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Ada was located in Dooly County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Ada to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Ada - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Ada, please Contact Us.
The community of Ada has also been called Dakota Station.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Ada might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Ada would be found within the (229) area code.
