Town of Herndon to Designate “Herndon Town Incorporation Day”

On Jan. 14, 1879, the Town of Herndon was officially incorporated, marking 141 years since its incorporation this month.

To honor its birthday, the Herndon Town Council plans to proclaim that day as the “Herndon Town Incorporation Day”:

“Further, the Mayor and Town Council of the Town of Herndon, Virginia, hereby express appreciation to mayors, councils, members of the Herndon Historical Society, town staff, and volunteers, who ~ both in the past and in the present ~ continually strive to preserve and document the history of the Town of Herndon, and encourage the public’s interest in our distinct heritage.”

The motion is up for a vote at the council’s meeting tomorrow. Every 10 years, the council presents this proclamation to Herndon’s Historical Society. The next presentation is set for 2029 for the town’s 150th anniversary.
