Ashland (ehemals auch Slash Cottage[1] oder Slashes[2]) ist eine ca. 6.600 Einwohner zählende Kleinstadt im Bundesstaat Virginia in den Vereinigte Staaten. Sie liegt rund 30 km nördlich von Virginias Hauptstadt Richmond im Hanover County.

Ashland wurde 1858 an einer historisch vielgenutzten Route zwischen Richmond und Washington, der heutigen Interstate 95, gegründet. Ashland ist heute Heimat des Randolph-Macon College.

Im Oktober 2002 geriet Ashland als einer der Tatorte der Beltway Sniper Attacks in die Schlagzeilen.
