This chapter takes its name from the Poage family. The city of Ashland dates back to the migration of the Poage family from the Shenadoah Valley, via the famed Cumberland Gap, in 1786. They settled upon a homestead along the Ohio River and named it Poage's Landing. It remained an extended-family settlement until the mid-1880s. In 1854, the city name was changed from Poage to Ashland, after Henry Clay's Lexington estate, and to reflect the city's growing industrial base.
