County Historic Districts
Are You in a Historic District?
To find out if you are in a Historic District, go to the Loudoun County Online Mapping System
. Historic Districts are located under "Boundaries" in the Map Layers under Land Records. Maps of the individual districts are also available on the Historic District Maps
page. The Towns of Leesburg, Middleburg, and Purcellville also have locally designated historic districts which are administered by the town governments.
The formation of a district and the addition of land to a district is a zoning action. The Loudoun County Zoning Ordinance allows for the creation of Historic Districts to achieve the following goals:
- To protect and enhance areas with special character or historic interest that reflect the County’s cultural, social, economic, political, architectural or archaeological history
- To foster civic pride
- To maintain and improve property values
- To enhance tourism
- To provide for the public education and general welfare of county residents
The formation of a Historic District requires the consent of a two-thirds majority of property-owners within a proposed district boundary
