Ashford, now a ghost town, was a community in Banner County, Nebraska, United States. Ashford was named for its first postmaster, William Ashford.

Named the temporary county seat of Banner County on 25 January 1889, it possessed a post office that opened in October 1888 and closed on 24 July 1902.

The community's elevation and geographic coordinates are uncertain, as nothing remains of the town. However, somewhat can be known of its location: it was located on Pumpkin Creek, a stream that flows into Morrill County, which lies to the east of Banner County.
