The History of Leesburg
Leesburg is also an old town full of history and romance. Leesburg once named Georgetown honoring King George II, was established in 1758 from land originally held by Lord Fairfax, then renamed for the influential Lee family of Virginia.
The town was formed at the crossroads of two important colonial roads now Route 7 and Route 15, and is the seat of government in beautiful Loudoun County.
Leesburg was once a staging ground for the British during the French and Indian War, and the Colonials during the Revolutionary War. During the war of 1812, the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and other vital documents were carried to a safe haven here. President James Monroe resided nearby at Oak Hill, where he wrote the Monroe Doctrine in 1823.
