Inscription.  Built in 1876, Elwardstone was the home of Isaiah Bready, the first mayor of Herndon. Bready operated a portion of the original 200 acre family property, which reached from the Herndon Centennial Golf Course to Grace Street, as a dairy farm. This use was typical in Herndon through the first half of the 20th century when the area began transitioning from a farming community to a suburban setting.
 
Erected by Town of Herndon, Virginia.
