Just a short drive from the nations capital is an area in which the past and the present blend in unique harmony. Modern communities, with their residential, recreational and business amenities and sleek, contemporary architecture, are neighbors to historic towns and villages that allow us to imagine what life was like in the days before the Civil War. Here, just 30 miles from Washington, D.C. and nestled in the foothills of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, is Loudoun County, Virginia.
In Loudoun, heritage and progress are given equal priority. This mix of tradition and modern style is at the heart of this countys attractiveness and is what makes living and working here so rewarding. While we have experienced tremendous growth in recent years, we havent lost sight of our heritage. In fact, Loudouns residents, businesses and leaders have sought to ensure that together, the past, present and future would form the character of Loudoun.
Residents, business owners, and visitors enjoy an uncommon but rich diversity here, and this diversity serves us all well. Loudoun County is synonymous with treasured history, scenic beauty, cutting-edge business opportunity and myriad recreation and cultural attractions. Eastern Loudoun gives us business, progress, high technology and modern, suburban conveniences. In contrast, Loudouns western region gives us natural beauty, history, rustic and romantic accommodations, and recreational activities that have formed our culture and character and add to the quality of life that attracted us to Loudoun in the first place.
In Loudoun, you can take yourself back in time with a simple glance at the stately antebellum mansions of Leesburg or a ride on Whites Ferry, which has carried travelers across the Potomac since the 1800s. At the same time, imagine and experience the present and future as you drive past the ultra-contemporary Center for Innovative Technology or take in Washington Dulles International Airports timeless architecture on the horizon. As those of us who live and work here know, Loudoun County has succeeded in making room for the past and the present in the same space, giving us the best of both worlds.
With this publication, the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce offers but a glimpse of life in our county. As you will see and read, quality of life is a way of life for us; our heritage laid the foundation and our present has preserved and built upon that foundation; our future will demand nothing less. But dont take our word for it; experience Loudoun for yourself. Only then will you know why so many businesses and people are proud to call Loudoun County "home."
