Previously known as "Unionville," Ashland was incorporated in 1846, bearing the name of statesman Henry Clay's Kentucky estate. It is considerably younger than many of the surrounding towns, as Ashland's territory was taken in near-equal parts from the previously established towns of Hopkinton, Holliston, and Framingham. Over time, many farms and open spaces have given way to housing, although some untouched land still remains. According to the United States Census Bureau, 15,400 people call these 13 square miles home.
A part of the draw of Ashland, and one that has been publicized in recent years, is its "ideal" location about halfway between the cities of Boston and Worcester. Travel is easy, with its own stop on the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail Line and nearby access to both I-90 and I-495. Even though Ashland has left its humble roots as a rural area, it still retains the look and feel of a typical residential Boston-area New England town.
