About Town of Leesburg, VA

The town is situated at the base of Catoctin Mountain and adjacent to the Potomac River, 33 miles (53 km) northwest of Washington, D.C., for which it has largely become a commuter suburb. Its population is 57,029, based on our projections of the latest US Census estimates. This makes it Virginia's largest incorporated town within a county.
