1. Jones Memorial Terrace Marker
Inscription.
Erected in 1957 by George and Jessie Jones in loving memory of their son, Earl E. Jones, Ashland College student 1920-21, who died in 1921.

This terrace is dedicated to the pleasurable growth and development of the young people who attend Ashland College.

Located in front of Founders Hall, the terrace features three major events in the history of Ashland College:

A stone engraved “1881” commemorating the first class to graduate from Ashland College

A stone bench engraved “1904,” the first four-year class after the reopening of the college

The keystone and corner stone saved from the original Founders Hall, engraved “1878.”

Heritage remembered and respected is an effective prologue to both present and future
 
Erected by George and Jessie Jones and Ashland University.
