Loudoun Museum

Loudoun Museum A museum dedicated to preserving and sharing the long history of Loudoun County
(21)

With a collection of over 8,000 artifacts, we have something for everybody. In our Discovery Room, kids can dress up in period costume, play in our 19th century period kitchen, and learn by doing. For the military buff, we have artifacts on display from arrow heads to WWII memorabilia, and plenty to learn about Loudoun’s role in the Civil War. We have antique clothing, furniture, and more. Right in the backyard of Washington, D.C., our history is the Nation’s history, but our county is one of a kind. Come by and find out for yourself.

After a great meeting with The Mosby Heritage Area Association clearly we had to stop to explore Loudoun and some Civil War Trails, Inc. markers. Here’s from down at the historical Goose Creek bridge and Rector House where Mosby formed his Confederate Partisan unit.

Need to get out of the office? Explore some of the beautiful historical sites around Loudoun! just beyond Loudoun County, Harpers Ferry is situated at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers and offers more than a great view toward Loudoun Heights. Its history includes John Brown's raid, Civil War battles, and the first Niagara Movement meeting regarding Civil Rights.

Need to walk off your Thanksgiving dinner?

Check out the some of the trails at Ball's Bluff Battlefield Regional Park! It not only preserves one of the earliest battles of the Civil War, but also protects a national cemetery. #Loudouncounty #today #Leesburg

Thanksgiving is a great time to eat delicious food, watch football, and see friends and family. But who do we have to thank for the beginnings of the holiday?

While the “first Thanksgiving” is largely considered to have been in 1621, the movement for it to become a holiday was largely promoted by Sarah Hale of New England throughout the early 1800s. For decades, Hale championed the idea of Thanksgiving and its commonly thought of traditions in her writings for the Ladies’ Magazine and Godey’s Lady Book. She often wrote to politicians advocating it to become a national holiday. Not long after receiving a letter from Hale in 1863, President Lincoln agreed to proclaim Thanksgiving a national holiday for citizens to reflect on their many blessings despite the country’s ongoing civil war.

We hope you have a terrific Thanksgiving!

Join Us for Psychic Night at Loudoun Museum!

Join us Saturday, October 27th for Psychic Night, a twist on Loudoun Museum’s usual Halloween activities! This year we welcome Leesburg Psychic Cindy Miller into the historic (and some say haunted) Odd Fellows Hall. The Leesburg Psychic will be conducting intimate group readings. Join us to see if there are any messages for you from the beyond!

What To Expect From a Psychic Reading?

Aside from providing you with evidential material, the Leesburg Psychic will provide you with useful and practical information about your situation. She may also provide you with tips on how you can use these situations for your own personal growth. A psychic cannot tell you what exactly will happen in the future, but can tell you what may happen if people around you continue to behave the way they do now.

Great psychic readings will provide you with a better insight into yourself and a better understanding of other people close to you. You will also find out what aspects of your life you urgently need to focus on and learn about. You will also receive guidance which will help you find new ways to think and live so that you can accomplish more and live your life with fulfilment and satisfaction.

What To Expect From a Tarot Card Reading?

Once you’ve received your reading from the Leesburg Psychic, join us in historic Log Cabin to have your tarot cards read by Ashley the Gypsy! Unsure about a big decision you need to make? Curious to know what the future may hold? Get your cards read and see what guidance Ashley can provide!

During the reading, your psychic will reveal one card at a time and try to determine what it means for your life. Each card is full of symbolism that can relate to different aspects of your life. Tarot cards can also reveal your personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses. As each card is revealed, you will have an opportunity to discuss your questions with your psychic.

Anything can be revealed during a tarot card reading. You may learn that you’re unhappy with your job, relationship, or any other aspect of your life. You also might be given guidance on things that you need to work on. Tarot cards are also known to predict the future, so they can help you to prepare for what’s to come, both the good and the bad.

Tuesday Trivia here in Loudoun County: Today, June 26th is the birthday of John Lewis, 1930-2013, a local architectural historian employed by the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission, who surveyed the land, made notes of the historic buildings, and worked with the Lincoln Community League. After spending two years surveying the area, Lewis approached the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors with the support of over 80 percent of the Goose Creek landowners to request historic designation. Many of the landowners belonged to families who had lived on the same land for nine generations or more. While they had worked personally to preserve the historical significance of their land, they wanted to receive official historic recognition to prevent outside companies from building structures or damming the creek in a way that would negatively impact the surrounding Goose Creek area. After two and a half years of debating, compromising, and legal inquiries, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors designated the Goose Creek area an historic district.
