Overview


Ashland, first known as Uniontown, was established in 1815 on a trail blazed and traveled largely by Native Americans in a setting covered by primitive trees nestled in the heart of Ohio. Growing from a single street of dust in the summer and mud in the winter, the town expanded from its agricultural roots to become the hub of industrial Ohio. With the introduction of the railroad, Ashland was escalated to the forefront of the manufacturing giants. By 1915, the little city with big vision saw spectacular achievements and inventions fall on the heels of one another, leading the world in the production of pumps, balloons, animal remedies, and auto jacks. Ashland's past is remembered and admired today by a new generation, which has brought economic change to a city that still carries a big vision for its future.
