Welcome to the official website of the Town of Ashland, New Hampshire. Residents and visitors alike will find information about the town government and the community.
Ashland is a picturesque rural community, gateway to the Lakes Region and on the southern edge of the White Mountain National Forest. The community of Ashland is bordered on the west by the Pemigewasset River and on the east by Little Squam Lake (the original location of the movie "On Golden Pond"). Ashland offers historical places, outdoor recreational opportunities, local artists and businesses to visit, as well as dining, shopping, and other services.
The Ashland Board of Selectmen seek to build and maintain the public's trust and understand the public's needs by providing a friendly proactive leadership, sound financial management practices and operate a cost-effective and efficient open and engaging town government.
Important Community information will be sent out via the Ashland Info-Blast as needed or the twice monthly Town Bulletin. To receive Info-Blasts or Town Bulletins, use the sign-up box in the right-hand column on the front page of the website.
