1. Herndon Dairy Farming Marker
Inscription.  In the early 1900s Herndon dairy farmers led the state in production. For decades, dairy farming was the primary industry and dominant land use of Herndon. Herndon downtown businesses flourished in support of the industry. The railroad provided a fast way to move fresh milk to markets in Washington, D.C. From a platform previously located on this site, farmers loaded their milk containers onto the train each morning and returned each evening to retrieve their empty containers for reuse the next day.
 
Erected 2020 by Town of Herndon, Virginia.
