BACH 3 - does this mean that somewhere in Ohio is Bach 1 and Bach 2? The Icon spotted this plate on a slate-colored Chevy Cruze in Ada. And, it's on a Bald Eagle special plate. Anyone who can tell us about the plate's meaning, please let us know at: info@adaicon.com

March 1905: Mayor Greer said Ada needed a marshal; we had a deputy but needed a primary officer and he nominated Alonzo Cummans.

May 1923:  the first advertisement for the Public Service Filling Station, located on East Buckeye Street, appeared in the newspaper. Earl S. Wolfrom was the local manager.
