Herndon began to grow as a community during the post-Civil War years as former soldiers and their families took up dairy farming in the area. The presence of the railroad was integral to the area's economics. Still, the population didn't crack the 1,000 mark until 1940. Residential development went through a huge boom in the 1970's and '80s and has now settled back to historically low increases with 7.6% growth during the last recorded census in 2010.
The Herdon real estate market is comprised of 61% single-family residences and 34% condos. Construction for condominiums and townhouses was a huge factor in the '70's and 80's development spike and has played a significant role in values and affordability. The town has evolved over the years but retains a lot of charm with homes from many eras represented, usually falling into prototypical styles such as Colonial, farmhouse, Rambler and brick custom contemporary.
