As Loudoun’s county seat and center for local government and entertainment, Leesburg, VA is easily accessible from both Maryland and Washington D.C. via Rt. 7, Rt 15 or the Dulles Greenway. Sporting a rich and noble history, Leesburg was established in 1758 and in 1812 was a temporary site of the United States government and archives. Leesburg was the site of a big Confederate victory at the Battle of Balls Bluff near the Potomac River.
Leesburg saw tremendous growth during the early 2000’s as Loudoun County was consistently ranked the fastest growing county in America for several years. As a result, you’ll find a wide array of home types from older ramblers to newly built mansions in luxury home communities like River Creek, Lansdowne and Belmont Country Club. With such growth in population over 50,000, Leesburg has changed from a sleepy old town to a vibrant social center with abundant restaurants and shopping including the Leesburg Corner Outlets.
Residents of Leesburg will enjoy use of the 141 acre Ida Lee Recreational Center with indoor and outdoor pools, waterpark and basketball and tennis courts. The Washington & Old Dominion trail passes through the city and offers bikers and runners miles and miles of uninterrupted paved trails on what used to be a train track.
