Description

Ashmont Community Information

Ashmont Post Office started in 1915 but the community really grew with the coming of the railway in 1919. Elevators and shipping facilities made the community grow. In 1939 the building of Highway 28 brought more people to the area.

The Hamlet of Ashmont is administered by the County of St Paul # 19 and in 2021 had a population of 125. It has a large school and some very active community organizations: the volunteer fire department, and the agricultural society.
