This is a very nice resting place for my family that have passed and to go reflect on our memories. So many of our neighbors have been buried there and it is nice to visit them while you walk to the well care for grounds.

This is a lovely, peaceful cemetery just a couple of blocks off of downtown historic Leesburg. It was founded in 1851, so don't mistake this for a Union-sided cemetery from the Civil War. A local historian told us it's named Union because the churches in...More

Next to Ida Lee Park, this cemetery has plenty of older graves many of which relate to the families that were large in Leesburg, VA's history. Many names were familiar based on place names currently in Leesburg (such as Ida Lee) and notable residents (such...More

This is a traditional cemetery with numerous graves stretching back to the founding of Leesburg into the present day. Not really a tourist site unless you are a history buff in search of those who founded Leesburg and other northern Virginia towns. Some interesting stonework...More
