Ashland is an important town in the extreme southeastern part of Saunders county. It is on the main line of the B. & M. R. R. at the junction with the Ashland cut-off and the Omaha and Schuyler branch, 30 miles from Omaha and 24 miles from Lincoln. The inhabitants of Ashland number 1,582 and are almost exclusively of American birth, it being claimed that not more than twenty are from foreign lands. The splendid water power at its command gives the city grand opportunities, in addition to that of Salt creek, immediately at their door, that of the Wahoo river, less than a mile away, is easily accessible. The Ashland Mill and Electric Light Co. furnish the city with incandescent lighting and have a roller flour mill with a capacity of 75 barrels per day. The Jewel mills, built during the present year, manufacture about 80 barrels of flour daily by the latest improved roller process. The new building of the Bank of Ashland, completed in the past year, cost $13,000. A noticeable feature about the city is the care taken with the lawns and shade trees surrounding the residences, many of which are elegant, There are some excellent hotels. The Hotel Selma, heated by steam and possessing all the modern conveniences is one of the best. H. K. Dunbar, the proprietor, understands the wants of the traveling public and is appreciated by them. The two newspapers, the Saunders County Leader and the Ashland Gazette, are well liked and extensively read. The Y. M. C. A. have an association here whose meetings are well attended. The churches are Methodist, Baptist, Congregational, Episcopal and Christian. The secret and benevolent societies are well supported. The fire department is efficient and affords good protection to the property of the citizens.
