The new issue of Ashburn Magazine is popping up in mailboxes and at local businesses this week — and it has a cover story that will resonate with many former AOL’ers in the area.
The company helped usher in Loudoun’s high-tech and data center future, bringing with it an educated, affluent population. While the former AOL campus is being razed, the magazine takes a look back at the impact of the company on Ashburn and surrounding communities.
Other stories in this issue include a local charity that uses a simple method to help people who are struggling with difficult times, a former Olympic fencer who calls Ashburn home, and a local woman who moved to Costa Rica to set up an eye clinic.
Plus, you’ll meet the construction team that builds many area restaurants and retail shops and learn about the history of the Beaverdam Reservoir and the new Reservoir Park.
Ashburn Magazine is delivered to roughly 14,000 homes in the 20147 and 20148 area codes. And it’s available at dozens of local businesses including Ashburn’s Giant grocery stores, the Ashburn and Brambleton libraries, Blend Coffee Bar, the Ashburn Ice House, and many more spots.
