Located in southeastern Oklahoma, Pontotoc County was named for a historic Chickasaw tribal area in Mississippi.  The California Road was an early travel route in the area, and the Delaware Mount plateau was a popular feature along the way.  Established before statehood, limestone quarries and cement production have both been major economic forces in Pontotoc County.  In 1974, the Chickasaw Nation established their headquarters in Ada.  East Central University, a four-year college, is also located in Ada.  Visitors to Pontotoc County will enjoy trips to the Old Bank Art Gallery, the McSwain Theatre or the Ada Gaming Center.
