In colonial Virginia, the English promoted urbanization, and Herndon became a city of more than four square miles in 1879. But in Virginia, this historic transition did not occur for thirty years, and it was not until the 1950 "s that the census registered the majority of Virginia's urban residents. The growth of the city was supported by the well developed railway system in the area and the rapid expansion of industrial development. After the railroad abandoned its Herindon stop in 1968, it expanded further and was expanded in 1881 to include the town of Ava and other towns in Kent County, Virginia.
With refurbishment plans, the state can still designate old buildings in the way of the project as historical resources. It can be frustrating that projects in these cities are delayed, especially if Virginia ultimately chooses not to protect the building as a historical resource.

Two projects in Herndon and Reston underscore the importance of historic designation for the development of transportation in Northern Virginia. The historic designation has shaped the debate over the development of transportation in Northern Virginia, and two of those projects, HerNdon's Development, trace their development back to the Alexandria, Loudoun and Hampshire Railroad that ran through the mid-19th century. Although this particular trade line never really developed, it would be interesting to see where its lanes would run and where the path would run along the intersection of North Main Street and Falls Church Road. The depot was one of the earliest surviving Virginia board and beat stations in Virginia and is now the headquarters of the Virginia Department of Public Works and the Fairfax County Police Department.
In Reston, plans to build a new bridge over Dulles Toll Road and redevelop an aging office park have run into obstacles because the state's heritage office has classified a series of office buildings dating back to the 1960s as historic. The state can classify the office building as historic and delay or even block the construction of the bridge and toll road, or designate and slow down or delay the new bridges and toll road in Dulls, or rehabilitate the aging office park.
