1872 – First Edition of the Ashland Press Printed Today

On this date the first edition of the Ashland Press, a weekly publication, was printed. It was printed in the barn of Ashland city founder, Asaph Whittlesey, in Bayfield. The second edition was printed in Ashland, outdoors and under a shade tree next to the Ashland Press building which was undergoing renovation at the time. [Source: , Tony Woiak, pg 14]
