Ashland, at the foot of Chequamegon Bay, was once a center for lumbering, mining, brownstone quarrying, and Great Lakes shipping. Today, the town is known as “The Historic Mural Capital of the World.” Downtown, local historic figures are depicted in a series of huge murals located in the historic business district. A number of historic brownstone structures still grace Ashland’s streets. The City Hall, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is one of the most striking. Two miles west of town, the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center details the area’s regional history and culture in a series of wonderful exhibits.
