FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF HERNDON

WELCOME TO HERNDON AREA

Herndon was named after Commander William Lewis Herndon, American naval explorer and author of "Exploration of the Valley of the Amazon." Commander Herndon captained the ill-fated steamer SS Central America, going down with his ship while helping to save over 150 of its passengers and crew. The settlement was named Herndon in 1858. In the 1870s, many Northern soldiers and their families came to settle in the area, taking advantage of moderate climate and low land prices. Herndon also offered a group of friendly and local native Americans who helped the town to prosper via trade and instruction. Herndon is a fast growing town.
