Welcome to Ashland (aka 'Ashland Bottoms') ...

So far, we have found very little information about Ashland. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Ashland to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Ashland, please Contact Us.


Ashland would have been located within present day Riley County<2>.

Since we don't have the location of Ashland, we have used what we believe to be its closest cemetery as an estimate.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Ashland, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Kansas' counties, including Riley, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ashland) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Ashland. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ashland

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ashland. We have been unable to find the coordinates for Ashland. That said, to estimate its location, we are using the latitude and longitude of what we believe to be a nearby cemetery (likely the town cemetery). The cemetery that we've chosen is named Ashland Cemetery and it is located at 39.1102, -96.6155   [Map].
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
