Scenic and Historic Loudoun County Virginia (Waterford)

I have read more than once that the American Civil War pitted brother against brother. I do not how often brothers actually fought on the battlefield but it really did happen in Waterford Virginia.

The historic village of Waterford was founded by Quakers in 1733 and was the first settlement in gorgeous Loudoun County, Virginia—currently one of the fastest growing and wealthiest counties in the United States.

How historic is Waterford Virginia? It is one of only three National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States. It is also on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Historic Landmarks Register.

By highway, Waterford is only one hour from Washington, DC. However, unpaved roads still exist in Loudoun County, making for a much more fun journey. For instance, Old Waterford Road from Leesburg to Waterford, is a historic Colonial path with many remaining 100 acre horse farms alongside (in spite of the encroaching development).
