A Place to Call Home: River Pointe in Leesburg VA
The town of Leesburg, Virginia, was a quaint town of 60 acres and laid out in the traditional Virginia plan of 6 criss-cross streets when it was founded in 1758. Since then, the town has grown, beckoning visitors with its 250 years of history, its proximity to the nation’s capital, and the Potomac River. With other enticing features, like being the gateway into DC’s wine country, and just a short drive to the gorgeous scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this little Virginia town is definitely a place on the map to stop and visit—and maybe even a place to call home.
