Yesterday I posted a story about Ashton (Did Anyone Ever Have Fun in Ashton? Ashton 101) and Marla Reid very graciously sent me some photos.
I lived in the Fleming house growing up in Ashton. Just a barn and The Carruthers then us. On the east side going north from the store. Have fun in Ashton??? Who didn’t? I think it was the safest place to be raised. It was/is a family community who took/takes care of each other.
The Flemming House circa 1969-73 my parents bought it in the summer of ’69. It got cream siding after ’92 and the blue spruce had to be taken down in the mid ’90’s due to roots ruining the foundation.

Thank you Marla for sending these. I have very little on Ashton so this just made me smile. If you have pictures please send them and I will put them up.
