Bluegrass State Tour: Ashland's Residential Neighborhoods

1 post in this topic

Ashland, Kentucky is a principal city along the Ohio River in Boyd County, with its early growth coming from the development of early mills and foundries in the region. During the 20th century, the region developed into an industrial powerhouse. Ashland was headquarters to Ashland Oil, which later became Ashland Inc., and was also home to Armco's Ashland Works, Allied Chemical and Dye Company Semet-Solvay Division, and several other mills and operations, and the immense wealth that was created led to a stable middle class developing in the city.

1600 Central Avenue was once located at 17th and Winchester in downtown, and was relocated in the early 1900s.
