Leesburg is just half an hour from here and we visit fairly often, but mostly to go to the Outlet Mall to shop.
Today was only our second visit to the historic 'downtown' area of Leesburg - the first visit was during Maggie and Emma's visit two years ago when we went there on Independence Day.
This illustrated booklet was the inspiration for today's visit. It came from the 'free' box at the Bargain Loft and dated from the late 1970's, but the houses featured had not really changed, although many had become office buildings rather than homes, sadly.
We started our walk adjacent to the only log cabin house which is still standing in the town, at the Loudon County Museum.
There were some interesting artifacts on display. The curator was dismissive of our walking tour booklet though, being out of date. We found it useful anyway!
There is a tremendous variety of house styles in Leesburg - some dating from the original town in the mid-18th century and then representing every possible architectural style or renovation since then.
