Director of Operations: Chris Box

In 2007, Chris was appointed to the position as Director of Operations for the Ashland County Historical Society. Under her direction, the historical society campus has grown to become a cultural asset to the community and was crowned as the 2014 winner of the Chamber of Commerce Culture and Recreation Award. A published author, Chris has written two books on the history of Ashland; “Images of America – Ashland” and “Postcard History of Ashland”. Most recently, her attentions were drawn to the coordination of events for the 2015 Ashland Bicentennial and in 2016, Chris was awarded as a Woman of Achievement for Ashland County. She is a member of the Ashland Symphony Board of Trustees, Trinity Lutheran Church Council, and the Ashland Chamber of Commerce Board of Trustees. Born and raised in Ashland, she is married to Tony Box - they have one daughter, Sydney.
