Herndon, Virginia City Info

Located in northwestern Fairfax County adjacent to the Loudoun County line, the Town of Herndon was once in the heart of one of Virginia's most important dairy farming regions. Until the 1960's it remained a relatively quiet country village, largely free of the hustle and bustle of it's more urban neighbors to the east. It's history is part of the history of colonial and post-revolutionary America.

The tracks of the Alexandria, Loudoun and Hampshire Railroad came through the area around 1857 and led to a surge in Herndon's development. Residents requested that a post office be located at the railroad station and then met to select a name for their town. One resident who was the survivor of a sidewheel steamer named "Central America".She sank after 3 days and nights of fighting a hurricane off the Carolinas. The ship's captain, William Lewis Herndon, went down with the ship. The story appealed to the gathering and it was decided to name the town after the heroic captain. The name "Herndon" was accepted by the Post Office Department and the post office was officially opened on July 13, 1858.

In the late nineteenth century Herndon residents enjoyed gathering on the platform of the railroad station to "sing songs to the accompaniment of banjos and while away the twilight hours," in the words of former town resident Lottie Dyer Schneider (1879-1967), author of "Memories of Herndon, Virginia."

At the time it was incorporated in 1879, the Town of Herndon encompassed 4.25 square miles and had begun to enjoy a new kind of trade thanks to the railroad: city families looking for a country vacation. As a result several spacious summer houses were built in the town and it was noted that "as an aftermath of the advent of good roads and modern conveniences, another invasion of Herndon took place," in part the result of the general popularity of escape from the crowded cities.

The railroad continued to be the economic backbone of the Herndon area well into the twentieth century. But as the highway system was steadily improved and as truck and auto transport became more dependable, the railroad's importance began to decline. Commuters could drive to work and farmers and merchants could use trucks to deliver their goods.

The last major job for the single-line railroad, then operated by the Washington and Old Dominion Company, was to haul sand for concrete used to build the runways at Dulles Airport. The last train left Herndon station in 1968.
