Do you see the Dock in the background?
The above photo was taken in 2012 at our Book Across The Bay ski race.
That is/was the Ashland Oredock in the background.
On my sisters weekend, the Oredock was gone.
My last visit to Ashland was in 2013, and some of the Oredock was still in place.
It was a big change for me to not see the dock out in the bay as I was driving into Ashland.
The former Wisconsin Central (Soo Line) Ore Dock was the iconic feature of Ashland in regards to its representation of the economic impact on one of the City’s founding industries, its visual impact to the cityscape, and its geographic impact to the community’s waterfront.Despite the community’s efforts, the deteriorating, unmaintained superstructure on the dock was removed with dismantling commencing in 2011 and being completed in late 2013.
In October while I was waiting for my sister to arrive in Ashland, I took a little walk on the new Ashland Dock.
The City of Ashland has done a great job of improving the water front.
I enjoyed my walk on the dock.
I am sharing a few of the photos I captured from the dock.
