Days Gone By…

Ashland's manufacturing district was known across the nation and the world. The hub of industrial Ohio was home to commercial giants such as F.E. Myers Pumps, the Dr. Hess & Clark Company, National Latex, Faultless Rubber, Elite Manufacturing, and the Garber Company, to name a few. By 1915, the producers in "the little city with big vision" worked feverishly to keep up with the demand that kept them growing.

One of the goals of the Ashland County Historical Society is to educate our community about the people and events that have shaped our history. This page will be updated periodically with photos that commemorate and honor the important people, places and events that have contributed to our county’s rich history. Many of these photos are taken from the books written by Chris Box, Director of the Ashland County Historical Society. The books, "Images of America, Ashland" and "Postcard History Series, Ashland," are available in our gift shop.
