History:

Developed in the late 90’s on former plantation land rich in history. On the property of Lansdowne on the Potomac, adjacent to what is now the Potomac Club house, sit two recently renovated buildings, a smaller smoke house and a larger, full detached kitchen that were once part of the Coton Plantation, run in the 1800’s by Thomas Ludwell Lee, Jr., a member of the illustrious Lee family for whom Leesburg was named. The Coton Plantation was an active plantation through that time and you can still see part of Mary’s Mill when hiking along nearby Goose Creek Trail. The silo from the plantation’s barn is now part of the Club house, adding history and character to the site.
