Historical Leesburg has Many Architectural Gems

Updated: Nov 5, 2020

Two buildings in Leesburg, for example, embody Romanesque Revival architecture. Identifying features are round arches over windows and entryways--with distinct emphasis around the arches; cavernous entry ways and window openings; and massive stone construction. The facades of these buildings are typically asymmetrical with variable stone and brick construction.
