From Boulder Junction, where we bid farewell to the “Townies,” Bruce and I headed northeast toward Bayfield, our home base for the next two nights. To break up the drive, we thought Ashland would be a great place to stop, stretch our legs, and see the town’s murals I had read about in my research.
Expertly and beautifully painted by Kelly Meredith and Susan Prentice Martinsen, most of the huge murals depicting Ashland’s history are located in the eight-block Main Street business district, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places:
Ashland’s historic downtown was quite charming. Between the murals, architecture, lovely little park, and artistic mosaic trash receptacles, it was a great place to visit!

I loved the story and photos of the “Townies” – – the murals were amazing!
