Hardin County Computing

AdaNet is the result of several years of providing information about Ada, Ohio and Hardin County on the web. The Village of Ada page was first introduced in June 1996 with a brief history of the town and various links of interest. This information is still available. But, as a way to better serve the needs of Hardin County and Ada, AdaNet was created to host a single site where interested web searchers can find helpful and useful information about the various organizations and institutions that make Hardin County a great place to work and live. AdaNet offers a place for business organizations and institutions in Hardin County to provide information to the community, customers and other interested parties.
