Guest speaker Terry Skibby, Photographer and Ashland Historian, is a lifelong resident of Ashland and has “…a particular fondness for the town’s Railroad District.” Terry will speak about the railroad’s rich history and the impact the railroad had in Ashland. The railroad arrived in Ashland in 1884, and in the ensuing years Ashland was the first stop for most visitors; they were struck with the beauty of this bustling town as they stepped off the train!  

The program is FREE, and open to the public. March 28, 1:30pm-2:30pm. Jackson County Genealogy Library, 3405 S. Pacific Hwy, Medford. For information, call 541-512-2340, email reception.JCGL@gmail.com, or stop by the library in person.
