A Town and Its HistoryBook - 2004
Set in western Fairfax County, Herndon, Virginia, is a vibrant town, firmly in touch with the present, planning for its future yet embracing its small town heritage. In Herndon: A Town and its History, Charles V. Mauro, noted local historian, author and president of the Herndon Historical Society, traces Herndon's history from the Paleo-Indians through the coming of the railroad that helped build and support the dairy industry that was Herndon's back-bone, to its growth as a Washington, DC, suburb and the urban expansion due to the building of Dulles International Airport. Herndon contains numerous archival images and illustrations and is complete with endnotes, a full bibliography and a full index.
