The Many Names of Ash

Ashburn has been known by several different names over the course of its history. The community began as Farmwell in 1802 and was sometimes referred to as Farmwell Station and Old Farmwell around the same time. It was named after a nearby estate owned by George Lee III. In 1841, a Quaker lawyer named John Janney bought part of the land and named it Ashburn Farm in 1870. The name Ashburn is believed to have come from family friends of Janney. Since the city’s development, it has had the honor of being home to two distinct sites on the National Register of Historic Places.
