Travel Tips for Ashland

Shiloh Baptist Church

by b1bob

This church is one of two black churches in Ashland. The first church was a wooden structure built in 1878. The modern church building was built in the 1890s and was covered in brick when additions were made.

Centre of the universe?

by b1bob

Folks from Ashland, Virginia like to think of themselves as the centre of the universe. They are definitely at the geographic centre of Hanover County, Virginia. Former mayor Dick Gillis came with the slogan in the 1980s supposedly because it was close to the mountains, the beach, Richmond, and D.C. It is right along the railroad line and it is a college town: home to Randolph-Macon University. Many in the rest of Hanover County believe Ashlanders like to think of itself as more cosmopolitan and urbane read: better than the rest of the county. In the autumn of 2008, Peter Greenberg wrote a book "Don't Go There! The Travel Detective's Essential Guide to the Must-Miss Places of the World" and included beloved Ashland under Lamest Claims to Fame. Of course Ashlanders were up in arms, demanding equal time to state the town's case on the same programme. While Greenberg's comments may have ruffled the feathers of Ashlanders, when put in context it makes sense. He said in the Today show interview, "I think it's (Ashland is) a nice place, but the point is, when you have hyperbolic overly stated claims that's a red flag to me." I will give Ashland its due for its fine architecture and more fine dining opportunities for a town this size, but I hardly think it is better than anywhere else in Hanover County...or the universe.

Hanover County Country Club

by b1bob

Hanover Country Club is located 4 miles (6.4 km.) west of downtown. The club is in the middle of a private neighbourhood, the hills, and the South Anna River. I know what you're thinking: the thought of me within 50 miles (80 km.) of a country club is unthinkable and not just because I don't play golf well. I have been here a couple of times for the Reagan Day Dinner and other such fund-raisers. So, I'm most familiar with their dining rooms for private functions. They offer 18 holes of golf, a practice facility, a driving range, and a pro shop. Besides golf, they have private tennis courts and an Olympic-size swimming pools.

Randolph Macon College

by davecallahan

You can't miss it because it is right on route 54, downtown Ashland, so it isn't really off the beaten path physically. But how many people just pull into the college to look at the landscape and buildings. (We do!).

On Henry Street you see the solidness of the Thomas Branch building and the Admin building just behind it. Take a picture of the fountain plaza with its five spokes leading to/from nearby buildings. The modernesque structure of the dining hall followed by the military-barracks style of the freshman dormitories. The faux-front of the McGraw Library next to the artsy landscaping of the Science Center. The spire on St. Ann's and the Methodist Church are worth a couple of clicks on your camera.

Take 15 minutes (a little longer if you are on foot) and a dozen frames of film or digital and enjoy the view.

(and what college has a train station right at the side door?.... this one does. So you can get some nice train pics too.)
