Excerpt from Illustrated Booklet: Randolph-Macon College, Ashland, Va
Ashland is immediately on the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad and the Electric Railway, thirty minutes' ride north of Richmond, upon the most elevated plateau between that city and Fredericksburg, Va. The location is distinguished for healthfulness and accessibility. On this account the town of Ashland was originally incorporated as a summer resort, and is much frequented during the heated term, while the comparative infrequency and the brief duration of severely cold weather make it especially favorable to health and comfort during the College session. There are no saloons in the town. Nine passenger trains each way stop at the College daily. Telegraph and telephone connections are had with all parts of the country. Mail six times a day.
