Why Do Residents Choose Ashland?

Parks & Recreation

With plenty of parks and even more trails, Ashland offers a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience for both residents and visitors. Because all of Ashlands' parks are a short stroll, bicycle ride, or drive from the historic downtown area, the natural world mingles with the quaint local atmosphere punctuated by the sounds of passing trains.


Ashland is a delightful mix of old and new. First, with the town centered around the railroad, opportunities for train lovers abound, including souvenirs at Tiny Tim's Trains & Toys. Then, the Hanover Museum of History & Culture highlights the area through authentic artifacts and special educational programs. And, the Ashland Theatre brings plenty of entertainment, from movies to live music.


Hanover County Public Schools deserves recognition for its impressive record and scope of services. 26 schools offer services to over 17,000 students from Pre-K to 12th grade. Ten schools proudly boast Blue Ribbon School of Excellence awards. Students benefit from 87 different career and technical education opportunities available.


Known for its small-town charm, you'll look forward to Ashland's seasonal events all year long. Popular events and festivals that draw a crowd include the celebration of all things locomotive during Train Day, a relaxed non-motorized July Fourth parade (complete with plenty of apple pie!), and the beloved Ashland Strawberry Faire to commemorate the berry harvest.

Historic Meets Modern

History is intertwined with modern life in Downtown Ashland. Railroad tracks mark the center of Main Street, creating a perfect backdrop for photography, or long strolls learning about the history of Ashland. Grab a bite at one of the many local institutions. Andy's Restaurant & Lounge has served diners since 1968, while the Iron Horse preserves more than a century of history in the former Cox's Department Store building.
