The town of Leesburg is not only the seat of government for Loudoun County, but also its heart. (That’s the courthouse pictured.) With the traditional downtown historic district, it retains the small town feel, but as home to more than 40,000 residents, Leesburg is a fully functioning modern city. Residents enjoy the annual holiday, Halloween, and Fourth of July parades. The first Friday of every month, the downtown shops stay open late, local musicians perform on the courthouse lawn, and folks wander through enjoying it all. Leesburg has seen it’s share of growth and change as part of one of the fastest growing counties in the country; many new communities and businesses have sprouted up since the early 2000’s. (The population in the county jumped 50% between 2000 and 2010.) You can explore Leesburg’s neighborhoods from this page using the drop down menu in the upper right corner of this page.
