The town is also prideful of its rich and varied history. From pre-colonial times to the Revolutionary War, Ashby played an instrumental role in the formation of the Colony and Independence. The town's historic burial grounds provide testimony to this. In the pre-Civil War era, the town was a station on the Underground Railway for slaves going to Canada.
The twentieth century saw the development of mills, and service in two World Wars to Desert Storm. Throughout it all, the character and pride of the town has grown, leading to a high degree of community spirit and service. (Narrative supplied by community)
