The town had its beginnings in 1688 when King Charles II of England granted 5 million acres to Thomas Culpeper and part of the land became Herndon. In the 19th century, a mill was built along a stream near the intersection of what is now Elden and Locust Streets. The railroad depot was built in 1857 and it launched Herndon into further development. Today, Herndon is a vibrant community that has a variety of commercial and residential areas.
Hiddenbrook is a community consisting of 393 traditional and contemporary style homes. There is access to a clubhouse, swimming pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, and picnic areas. Residents appreciate the tall trees and wide sidewalks, perfect for those with families and pets to spend quality time outdoors. There is nearby shopping in Old Town Herndon, Elden Street and Sterling Town Center.
The Kingstream community in Herndon has more than 300 single family homes with access to paved walking trails, two tot lots, two tennis courts, a pool, and a basketball court. Herndon High School is right next to the community, and Herndon Elementary is just down the road.
