History:  

ASHBY, a city of Pelican Lake Township, sections 2, 3, 10, and 11, platted in 1879, was named for Ashby, England, or possibly in honor of Gunder Ash, a pioneer farmer from Norway, who lived east of the village site and was a friend of James J. Hill. The village was developed on land owned by Simon Larson and was incorporated on March 7, 1884; the post office began operating in 1880.
