Ashland Historical Society

“For over 100 years the Society’s members have volunteered their time and knowledge to preserve Ashland’s history and provide information to those who seek it. We are very fortunate to have as our home The Ocean House, built in 1748 by one of our earliest settlers”.

Mill Pond Park

“Some of the first mills were built by our earliest settler, Savil Simpson. One of Simpson’s mills was located at what is today Mill Pond on Myrtle Street. It was a saw and grist mill at first. Simpson’s daughter married Col. John Jones, who along with Simpson, added a fulling process to the mill. Fulling is a cleaning and thickening process, particularly for wool, and water power made the process easier. Jones built homes near the dam, including the Ocean House, the home of the Ashland Historical Society”.
