Still on Main Street after 100 years


Here’s a familiar building on Ada’s Main Street. It’s a colorized photo of the Disciple Church taken over 100 years ago.

Several items make this photo interesting. Look at the street light in front of the church. Also notice that the street is bricked and are there sidewalks? Behind the church appears to be a barn.

The postcard, mailed on Oct. 21, 1910 was sent to “Miss Kerns,” #1338 Dennison Ave., Columbus. The message reads: “Landed in Ada this morning. Having a great time. We are going for an auto ride this p.m. (signed) Ella.
