Leesburg is a charming town in Northern Virginia of about 38,000. It’s about 45 miles from Alexandria but seems farther because of the traffic. I had never been there, so today (Saturday, September 16, 2006) was the day.
The most interesting building in the historic district is the People’s Bank with its row of flags.
The obligatory bell tower. Every colonial town’s gotta have one.
It was sprinkling a little bit, but I found an awning to take pictures under.
I liked this building with the green shutters. The combination of rock masonry and brick was interesting.
The obligatory historic plaque.
I liked this bench outside a diner where most of the town seemed to be having lunch. Check out the people at the table. The one in the center who looks like she’s drinking a glass of juice is really the reflection of some weirdo taking a picture.
The historic district was only a few blocks long, so it only took about 15 minutes to get all the pictures I wanted. Okay, I’m exaggerating. Thirty minutes tops, including walking back to the car.
That’s all, folks.
