|Founded by||Yemenite immigrants|
Hadid was a city of the tribe of Benjamin in Biblical times. In the Hellenistic era it was known as 'Adida. Hadid was founded in 1949 as a kibbutz by Yemenite Jewish immigrants, later joined by immigrants from Romania. In 1950, it was reorganized as a moshav affiliated with the Hapoel HaMizrachi movement. The site was about 2km west of the former Palestinian village site and on the land of al-Haditha and the archaeological tel of ancient Hadid (Adida).
In 2008, an archaeological excavation was conducted by Hagit Torgë at Tel Hadid which yielded scant remains and a building from the Iron Age and the early Persian period.
