History:  

FORADA, a city in Hudson Township, section 20, platted in July 1903 by Cyrus A. Campbell of Parker's Prairie, Otter Tail County, incorporated July 20, 1905, has the first name of Mrs. Campbell, Ada; but that name was already widely known as the county seat of Norman County, and therefore it received the prefixed syllable. The city had a station of the Soo Line and a post office, 1904-54.
