Developed by RF&P Railroad Company as a mineral springs resort, the town dates back to the late 1840s when it was called “Slash Cottage”. Ashland got its name in 1855, and was incorporated on February 19, 1858. With the relocation of Randolph Macon College to Ashland in 1868, the town evolved from a railroad resort to a small college town. This stroll through Ashland, lovingly nicknamed the Center of the Universe, will take you inside historic homes of varied architectural styles.  Plan your visit to enjoy the tour, plus all that Ashland has to offer – restaurants, art, one-of-a-kind shops, The Ashland Museum and more.

Advance ticket price: $25. Day of tour: $30
