LEESBURG, VA HOTELS
Founded in 1758, historic Leesburg, Virginia is located along the base of Catoctin Mountain, adjacent to the Potomac River and 33 miles west-northwest of Washington, D.C. While many people think that the town is named for Francis Lightfoot Lee—a signer of the Declaration of Independence who lived in the area and put forth the bill to establish Leesburg—or even General Robert E. Lee (Francis’ grandnephew), the name actually honors the influential Thomas Lee, Francis’ father and a leading political figure of colonial Virginia. There is so much to see and do in this historic town, so make sure you book your accommodations at one of the Leesburg, VA hotels from the Choice Hotels family!
WHERE HISTORY LIVES
While Leesburg has become a modern suburb for commuters to Washington, D.C., it’s steeped in national history. During the War of 1812, the town was used as a temporary shelter for the U.S. Government and its archives (including the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution) when the British Army attacked the nation’s capital. More recently, Leesburg was home to General George Marshall, whose famed Marshall Plan helped rebuild Europe after World War II and earned him a Nobel Peace Prize. The restored Marshall House (formerly Dodona Manor) is one of Leesburg’s 21 entries on the National Register of Historic Places – which includes battlefields, famous homes, museums and other landmarks.
