Following the 1817 Treaty of Fort Meigs, the Shawnee Indians held reservation land at Hog Creek near Ada. Ada itself was originally called Johnstown, platted in 1853 by S. M. Johnson when the railroad was extended to that point. When a post office was established it was called Ada Post Office, named after the postmaster’s daughter, Ada. The post office has been in operation since 1854. Ada has been noted for having one of the shortest place names in Ohio.

The Wilson Sporting Goods NFL football manufacturing facility is located in Ada, and is the only leather football manufacturing facility in the United States. The world-famous football “The Duke” is produced here and has been the official game ball of the NFL since the 1940s, with interruptions.
