Ashford Center Special Planning Area



Characterized as Historic & Commercial

Ashford Center is the site of Ashford's first church, burial ground and town green. Many historic homes still enhance this area. While maintaining this historic feel, Ashford Center also accommodates businesses on the south side of busy Rte. 44. Nearby is a veterinarian's office, family restaurants, and auto and small engine repair services. This is also the home of the internationally recognized Hole in the Wall Gang Camp founded by Actor Paul Newman.

" "It is envisioned that the north side of Rte. 44 in Ashford Center will continue to maintain and improve its historical buildings and sites and disallow future commercial zoning. The south side of Rte. 44 will continue to allow controlled commercial development."
