About Ashland, MA
The Town of Ashland's ideal location midway between Boston and Worcester provides easy access to the interstate highway system and the Massachusetts Turnpike. Ashland was, in earlier times, 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 in about 1659.
Ashland was incorporated in 1846 known then as "Unionville". With the construction of the railway, Ashland became a bustling mill town with the boot and shoe industry flourishing. In 1916 Henry E. Warren developed the Warren Synchronizing Timer which led to the creation of the first synchronized electric clock. He then founded Telechron and partnered with GE to manufacture electric clocks until 1979. Through the years Ashland has remained a small quaint New England Town with a growing population, active recreation and strong school district.
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. Ashland, although predominantly residential, 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!
