Overview

Established in 1758, Leesburg was named for Thomas Lee, governor of Virginia from 1749-50. When Washington was burned during the War of 1812, several wagon loads of official documents arrived for safekeeping in Leesburg. Nearby, a small national cemetery is located in Ball's Bluff Regional Park, the site of a Confederate victory during the Civil War. The downtown area has several historic buildings, antique shops and restaurants. Oatlands Plantation, Morven Park and Dodona Manor are a few of the restored homes open to the public.
