The history of the Town of Leesburg

The Town of Leesburg was first established as a town in 1758, historic
Leesburg, Virginia is located 33 miles northwest of Washington, D.C.,
along the base of the Catoctin Mountain of the Blue Ridge, and adjacent
to the Potomac River. Washington Dulles International Airport
is just south of Leesburg and is connected by the Dulles Greenway. At its heart of the city lies the charming downtown
district, listed in the National Register of Historic Places,
cited as one of the best-preserved and most picturesque downtowns in
Virginia. Eclectic shops, fine restaurants, and award-winning
businesses, set in well-maintained traditional architecture, draw
residents and visitors from all over the world.  Covering 12.5
square miles, the residential and commercial mix surrounding historic
downtown is filled with distinctive neighborhoods, safe streets,
libraries, churches, landmarks, and public parks and trails.

Leesburg’s ideal location between the tranquility of western Loudoun’s
rural horse and wine country, the valley at the base of the Catoctin
Mountain and the short commute to Washington D.C. make it an appealing
hometown for an increasingly diverse population in the 21st century.
Over the past thirty years, much of Leesburg, like the rest of Loudoun,
has had growth at break-neck speads. Land values have more than tripled
in the same time period. In 1980, it was still a small, primarily rural
town of just over 8,000 people. By the 2010 Census estimates Leesburg’s
population at 38,764 residents.

As it has done throughout its history, Leesburg today serves as the
center of government and commerce for Loudoun County, with more than
1,500 businesses and over 20,000 employees located in Leesburg. In
addition to its proximity to Dulles International Airport, Leesburg
operates the Leesburg Executive Airport at Godfrey Field,
serving Loudoun with private and corporate aircraft operations. As a
designated reliever airport for Dulles International, the Leesburg
Executive Airport is the second busiest General Aviation airport in the
region. The Federal Aviation Administration’s Washington Air Route
Traffic Control Center is located in Leesburg. One of the largest, most
comprehensive conference centers in the nation, The National Conference Center
(formally the Xerox Training Center) is
located on 110 scenic acres near Leesburg, accommodating corporate,
government, military, and religious meetings and special events for
Loudoun County and the Washington D.C. area.

Market Station, located just south and east of Leesburg’s Historic
District, is a cluster of seven restored historic buildings, some
reconstructed in or relocated to the site: a railroad freight station,
a railroad stationmaster’s house, a log house, two barns and two
gristmills. Market Station is now filled with restaurants, retail
shops, high-tech and legal offices, including Visit Loudoun
, the visitors’ center. A plaza on the east side of
the site marks the old Washington and Old Dominion Railroad, which
served the town until 1968. During the heyday of the railroad, this
area was a bustling inland wharf, farm wagons loading up for blocks to
load their goods. The 45-mile long right-of-way from the old W
& OD railroad is now part of Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority’s
trail system, attracting hikers, bikers, and joggers to and through Leesburg.
