Ashland: 100 Years of a Lexington, Kentucky Neighborhood by Dennis Carrigan

As the 20th century began, the small and thriving city of Lexington, Kentucky was adding new streets and residences to accommodate its growing population. One of the finest of the new neighborhoods was named Ashland, anchored as it was by the Federal-style house of that name, once home to the statesman and US senator Henry Clay. Indeed, as a 1917 advertisement in the Lexington Leader stated, “For the man who wishes to build a home no more desirable location can be found.”
