I recently had a buyer looking for a home in Ashton Heights, and as part of my research into the neighborhood I ran the Spring sales numbers.

In 1919, realtor Ashton C. Jones purchased 61 acres of land bounded by present-day 5th Street North, North Nelson Street, the Columbia Gardens Cemetery, 2nd Street North, and North Irving Street. He mapped out one subdivision on each side of Cathcart Road (now North Pershing Drive ), then combined the two and in 1921 formally filed the larger subdivision which he named Ashton Heights. Additional blocks were added over the next fifteen years by various developers, and the neighborhood soon extended to encompass the whole residential area now bounded by Wilson Boulevard, 10th Street North, North Irving Street, Arlington Boulevard, and North Glebe Road.’ – (Source: http://ashtonheights.org/about-ashton-heights/history/ )
