Welcome to Middleburg
Middleburg, Virginia, is a charming Southern destination known as the nation’s horse and hunt capital.

Middleburg was established in 1787 by American Revolutionary War Lieutenant Colonel and Virginia statesman John Leven Powell, who purchased the property from Joseph Chinn, a cousin of George Washington. Powell changed the name from “Chinn’s Crossroads” to Middleburg because the town was the halfway point between Alexandria and Winchester along the popular Ashby Gap trading route, along what is today Rte. 50.

A place like no other
“The first time I came to Middleburg, I was amazed that someplace so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing could be just an hour’s drive from our Nation’s Capital. When you walk along the streets, it truly is like stepping back into time. It’s like no place else I’ve ever been.”
