Ashland is an unincorporated community in Liberty Township, Henry County, Indiana.


Ashland was originally called Mullen's Station.[3] The town was officially renamed Ashland, likely after the city of Ashland, Ohio, in the 1850s.[3] A post office was established as Ashland in 1848, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1910.[4]
