Washington, D.C.-The National Park Service's (NPS) National Register of Historic Places unveiled its newest online travel itinerary, "Ashland, Oregon: From Stage Coach to Center Stage", featuring 32 historic places in and about the scenic town of Ashland. Located in the spectacular Rogue River Valley, Ashland lies just 14 miles north of the California border at the foot of Mt. Ashland. The itinerary highlights the history of the region from its settlement in 1852 as a milling center to an incorporated town that became a focal point for education and culture. The center includes the Southern Oregon University and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, which was founded in 1935. Today the Oregon Shakespeare Festival is the largest regional repertory theater in the United States, offering 11 classical and contemporary plays in three theaters from February through October. This itinerary includes 32 of Ashland historic sites, along with maps, descriptions, and photographs to illustrate the charm and historical importance that await the visitor to historic Ashland. The City of Ashland has provided support for historic preservation efforts through its sponsorship of the Historic Commission and through recognition of individual citizens' efforts to keep its history alive. For example, Ashland for many years has had four locally designated historic districts. In large part as a result of City support, two of these-the Ashland Railroad Addition District and the Downtown District--have now been placed on the National Register, while the others are in the process of nomination and consideration. Created through a partnership between the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places and the Historic Commission of the City of Ashland, "Ashland, Oregon: From Stage Coach to Center Stage" is an exciting example of a cooperative project between the Department of Interior and local and state communities.
