HISTORY of Northern Wisconsin


ASHFORD was originally organized as the Town of Chili; but for some reason this name was not satisfactory, and by act of Legislature, approved January 26, 1854, it was changed to Ashford, which, it is said, was suggested on account of the great quantity of ash timber growing in the town.  This name was given by Dr. S. G. Pickett.
