Now part of Loudoun's tech corridor, Ashburn was once a very different type of Washington Metro community. Back in the 1720's, it was part of a land and power struggle between two wealthy and influential tobacco merchants, Thomas Lee and Robert Carter. The men and their heirs battled for control of roadways, shipping and distribution rights for more than a century before the railroad finally arrived. The town once known as Ashburn Farm became Loudoun County's largest commercial center, as well as a summer community.
By the time Ashburn arrived in the modern post World War II era, things had died down again. While it thrived commercially during the railroad's heyday, it had never been heavily populated. By the 1960's it was mostly known for dairy farming. Once again, a new boom era arrived – the 1980's brought a rash of residential development as the suburbs arrived. Today, properties for sale in Ashburn are evenly divided between condos and single-family homes with a median list price of nearly $500,000. Values hit their low after the nationwide economic crisis but it didn't take long for the rebound to begin – there has been a steady climb back since 2009 with an even steeper climb over the past year.
