All About Ashland, NJ

The following snippet of the neighborhood's history has been brought to you by the car accident lawyers in Ashland, NJ, at NJ Injury Guys.

Ashland

The unincorporated community of Ashland is a census-designated place (CDP) within the township of Cherry Hill. It sits in the northern section of Camden County, New Jersey.

Early History

The early residents of the area made up the Osage Tribe. They were part of the Midwest Sioux. The Lenni Lenape set up camps throughout the region and took advantage of the resources found within the forests, such as hunting and edible plants. They would fish the waterways found throughout the greater area using bark canoes and log cutouts. Arrowheads are found in the areas still to this day. 

The community began to take form as a residential area after the completion of the railroad. A general store that also posed as the local post office was found near the train shop. The town was named after Henry Clay's estate in Kentucky and was the first stop by the stagecoaches.
