In 1951, Ernie Ausherman left his job to build homes in Frederick County. Ausherman Homes began with the construction of single-family residences. In 1986, Ausherman Development Corporation was established to meet the growing demands of the commercial and residential markets. In 2003, the home-building business was sold, and our efforts now focus on residential and commercial development with Ausherman Properties.
Today, Ausherman Properties continues to focus on that same community building while building community, honoring the history and legacy of our founding father, continuing the work he started almost 70 years ago, and making a positive impact on the community we love.
Looking back on a few of our company milestones…
