Lovettsville

When you work with me, you will find that attention to detail is one of my biggest strengths. I strongly believe in the “Golden Rule” of treating others as I would like to be treated. I first fell in love with Northern Virginia when my spouse was stationed here with the Air Force over a decade ago. During that time, I have raised three children, contributed to the local community, and became passionate in helping others with their major life changing events – buying and selling their home.

Buying and selling a home in Lovettesville doesn’t have to be stressful. Call me today!

Lovettsville is a town in Loudoun County, located near the very northern tip of the Commonwealth of Virginia, United States. Settled primarily by German immigrants, the town was originally established in 1836.

The population was 1,613 at the 2010 census. The 2010-2012 American Community Survey (ACS) estimated the population at 1,737.

Following the 1722 Treaty of St. Albans which established the Blue Ridge Mountains as the buffer between Native Americans and white settlers, German immigrants began arriving in the northern Loudoun Valley to farm the rich topsoil. They established several villages, many constructed of log and wooden buildings, and began to expand their land holdings. Lovettsville was then called The German Settlement.

In 1820 David Lovett subdivided his property into quarter-acre “city lots.” As a result of the ensuing construction boom, the town was called Newtown. In 1828, the town was again renamed Lovettsville. In 1836 the Virginia General Assembly established Lovettsville as a town, but the town was not fully incorporated until 1876.

During the Civil War, Lovettsville was an important transportation stop for Union troops crossing the Potomac River. Lovettsville was also among the few communities in Loudoun County to vote against secession.

In 1940, Lovettsville was the site of a crash of a DC-3. It was the worst in US history at that time, killing 25 people including U.S. Senator Ernest Lundeen, and became known as the Lovettsville air disaster.

The Lovettsville Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.

In 2018, after the NHL’s Washington Capitals advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals for the second time in franchise history, the town’s council voted to temporarily rename Lovettsville to “Capitals-ville” for the duration of the Finals.
