Ashland, Massachusetts dates back to about 1659 . In those days it was a stopping point on a major Indian trail which later became known as the Bay Path, connecting Cambridge and Connecticut. It was here that a community of Natick Indians was established as the Village of Magunkaquog. Sir Harry Frankland, a descendant of Oliver Cromwell, built a manor-house here in 1750. Once the original starting point of the world famous Boston Marathon, which still runs through Ashland, the town is also known as the site of Henry Warren's invention of the electric clock, later manufactured here under the Telechron name.
Traces of Ashland's early history still live on, such as John Stone's Inn on Main Street in the town center which dates back to 1834. The Inn survives as Stone’s Public House, a popular local restaurant and a site of interest for psychics and ghost hunters to the present day, due to the many spirits which supposedly roam its halls.
Although predominantly residential, Ashland is committed to a close working relationship with its business community. Businesses, residents and visitors look forward to "Ashland Day", a not-to-be-missed annual celebration of traditional New England spirit.
