The Ashland Place Historic District is a historic district in the city of Mobile, Alabama, United States. The neighborhood gained its name from a Greek Revival antebellum house called Ashland that once stood on Lanier Avenue. Ashland was famous as the home of Augusta Evans Wilson.[3] The house burned in 1926. The Ashland Place Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 23, 1987.[1] It is roughly bounded by Springhill Avenue, Ryan Avenue, Old Shell Road, and Levert Avenue.[2] The district covers 400 acres (1.6 km2) and contains 93 contributing buildings. The majority of the buildings date to the early 20th century and cover a variety of historical architectural styles ranging from late Victorian to the Craftsman styles.[2]
