A small town located just west of Leesburg, Hamilton exudes a beautiful, rural, old-world charm. Founded in the mid 1700s, the town flourished in 1868 when the Washington and Old Dominion railroad transported Washingtonians trying to escape the intense city heat for cooler summer air.
With a population barely more than 500, Hamilton celebrates its proud heritage with Hamilton Day – a community celebration held annually each June featuring home tours, barbeques, kid’s activities and a parade.
Dining in Hamilton includes roadhouse food (Lowry’s Crab Shack) and traditional American food, breakfast and brunch. Other features of this quaint community includes Hamilton Community Park and Loudoun County Milling, which still mixes and sells feed and produces flour for baking. Conveniently located between Leesburg and Purcellville, residents enjoy many more dining and shopping options outside of Hamilton itself.
