City of Leesburg


The city of Leesburg was established on June 16th, 1866 after gold was discovered at the Leesburg Mine. As most settlers were Southerners, the settlement was named after Confederate war hero general Robert E. Lee. Today, Leesburg remains an unincorporated community, and little remains of its origins. However, the site has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975.
