Affectionately known as the "Center of the Universe" by residents for its central location within the state, Ashland is a great place for travelers to call home while visiting Virginia. Just 15 miles north of Richmond, in Hanover County, Ashland is only 90 minutes away from Washington, D.C. and Williamsburg. Boston, New York, Detroit and Atlanta are all within a day’s drive. In fact, 60% of the U.S. population is within 750 miles of Ashland.

A turn-of-the-century railroad town, Ashland was originally developed by the RF&P Railroad as a resort for Richmonders. Today the railroad tracks still send trains rumbling through the center of town, past Randolph-Macon College, lovely historic homes, shops and unique eateries.

Brochures, maps and other literature available for your next visit to the Center of the Universe!
