Come See Frontier Structures Preserved in their Original Form

A few of the rustic, frontier-like houses built in the 1760s preserved in their original form still exist in historic Leesburg. Known as covenant houses, the dimensions are small -- typically 16' x 20'. While some of these structures are constructed with stone, most of the early residents chose to build wth logs, which were less expensive than brick or stone. Log houses continued to be built for the rest of the century and even into the 19th century.
