2012 Ashland City Council
CITY OF ASHLAND
Known as the City of Friends, Ashland is proud of its small town atmosphere and offers many features found in much larger areas. Incorporated in 1871, the City of Ashland is located in east central Alabama just minutes from the recreation areas of Mt. Cheaha, Lake Harris and the Talladega National forest.
Ashland's community spirit is seen at all walks of life: from excellent public schools to a newly remodeled library, as well as a community hospital, wellness center, nursing home and senior center. Ashland supports a very active county-wide Arts League and offers churches of many denominations.
Local industries include Tru-Wood Cabinets, Koch Foods, and Wellborn Cabinets located just outside the city as well as the Honda plant located in nearby Lincoln.
Ashland's new commemorative plaque was unveiled by Governor Riley
