The Town of Middleburg [1] was established in 1787. It is the southernmost town in the County and it has a rich historical past, from colonial times through the Civil War to more recent times, that is treasured by the citizens of Loudoun and especially by the citizens of Middleburg. A significant portion of the Town has been placed on the National Register for Historic Places and the Town administers a local Historic District to provide architectural review over development. The Town of Middleburg has had a stable population for several years, and this trend is expected to continue.

The Town of Middleburg attracts tourists from around the world. The commercial core of Middleburg contains upscale shops that are marketed for the tourist industry. Visitor dollars at restaurants, shops, and inns within the Central Business District generate 60 percent of annual town revenues.

The equestrian farms and estates located around Middleburg and the associated equestrian businesses are central to Middleburg's social fabric and way of life. Many citizens of Middleburg have connections to the equestrian industry either though direct work on the farms or work in equestrian related businesses. Equestrian activities also provide entertainment to citizens in the area as well as to visitors. This equestrian industry is a major contributor to Loudoun's economy.

A high priority for the community is to ensure the protection of its historic character and to ensure the viability of the equestrian industry. The Town and property owners of large estates surrounding Middleburg, want to take precautions to assure the future health of these things. The Town is concerned about the rate of growth in the County and wants to protect the open space around the Town from rural residential encroachment. To address this concern, the Town is pursuing development of a conservation district for a large area around the Town and the surrounding rural area. The County is committed to providing necessary resources to assist in the creation of this conservation district.
