History

Nestled in historic Leesburg, the region's general history dates back to 1722 when early settlers began inhabiting the area. As the population grew, the Civil War, both World Wars and the post-war boom brought many changes to Leesburg, a town once centered on agriculture. As workers steadily became increasingly educated and increasingly integrated in the metropolitan area of Washington, D.C., Leesburg transformed into a charming town with a vibrant arts, culture and shopping scene.

The land destined to become Lansdowne on the Potomac once operated as a sprawling southern plantation. Builders began construction of the community in the late 1990s, with the majority of its residents moving in during the early 2000s.

Loudoun Museum, located 5 miles away in Leesburg, strives to make history fun and exciting. It features annual haunted tours in fall, special exhibits for kids and plenty of exhibits to bring area history to life.

Transportation

Commuters traveling into Washington, D.C., can take advantage of Metrorail Silver Line Service. The Silver Line Metro bus buses travelers from the Leesburg Bus Station, located about 6 miles from Lansdowne on the Potomac, to Silver Line metro stations like Wiehle-Reston East or Spring Hill. At these stops, travelers can transfer to Metrorail service into the city. Additionally, local public bus service, provided by Loudoun County's 7 to 7 on 7 line, can be picked up at Inova Loudoun Hospital. The bus connects passengers to stops such as the Home Depot and Outlets on Fort Evans Road, the Loudoun County Government Center, George Washington University, Dulles Town Center and the Kohl's on Mirror Ridge Place.

Many residents choose to commute to work by car, although many people also opt to carpool. Alternatively, residents can arrange transportation with Uber or local taxi companies. Find plentiful parking both on the street and in parking lots around businesses.

Proximity to Route 7, a major commuter roadway, and access to smaller roadways such as Route 267 or Route 28, which connect to Interstates 66 and 495 facilitate relatively easy and fast travel throughout the region and beyond. On a beautiful day, you’ll likely see many of your neighbors walking and biking in the community, which features access to bike trails and shared roadways.

This extensive network of walking, biking, horseback riding and boating trails, operated by the National Park Service, links the upper Ohio River basins with the Potomac with pathways once traveled by George Washington.

Shopping

Although Lansdowne on the Potomac has its own small shopping center, you'll need to take a short drive toward Leesburg to find specialty stores.
