The Oregon and California Railroad reached Ashland from the north in 1884, and the line was completed to California in 1887. Not surprisingly, this resulted in a huge boost for the growth of Ashland. This image, re-created from a boudoir card photo, shows the train arriving from the north in 1888.

By that time, Ashland had almost doubled in size from 1880. This view shows most of the town, oriented from north to south along the railroad and the hills behind the town. Today the population of Ashland is over 20,000, and becomes much larger during the season of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
