Picturing Our History

Woman’s Clubs

    Members of the South Ashland Woman’s Club pose for a photograph in The Ashland Gazette in 1922. The community of Ashland has had clubs for women since the late 1800s. The first Ashland Woman’s Club founded the Ashland Public Library. For decades there were multiple clubs for the different areas of Ashland, including South Ashland, as pictured above. Today, only the Ashland Junior Woman’s Club survives, but it is a thriving club that organizes many fun events for the community, including the Easter Carnival, Freaky Frolics and the Stir-Up coronation.
