Local Newspapers

Residents of the Town of Ashland are fortunate to have access to a number of local and regional newspaper options.  

Richmond Times-Dispatch: The Richmond Times-Dispatch is the primary daily newspaper for Central Virginia and the Richmond Region.  Coverage focuses on Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield,  and Hanover County (including the Town of Ashland).  

The Ashland-Hanover Local: The Ashland-Hanover Local and Mechanicsville Local are smaller weekly newspapers produced by Richmond Suburban News, a subsidiary of the Richmond Times-Dispatch.  The Ashland-Hanover Local focuses on news for the Town of Ashland and western Hanover County while the Mechanicsville Local focuses on news for eastern Hanover County.  Both papers are served by the same website.

The Herald-Progress: The Herald-Progress served the Town of Ashland and Hanover County as a weekly newspaper for over 100 years.  Unfortunately, this local institution closed its doors on March 29, 2018.
