Leesburg was originally named Georgetown for the English king, George III. It was later renamed Leesburg, most probably for Francis Lightfoot Lee, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and a respected local landowner. Leesburg is located in Loudoun County amid rolling hills and exceptional natural beauty. It’s an area where picturesque country towns and thoroughbred horse farms are scattered from one end to the other, and where fox hunting, point-to-point horse racing, steeple chasing, and horse shows are extremely popular. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
