A Taste of History
Revolutionary War Lieutenant Colonel and Virginia statesman Levin Powell purchased land known as “Chinn’s Crossroads” for $2.50 an acre from Joseph Chinn, first cousin to George Washington. Powell changed the name to “Middleburg” because of the town’s location halfway between Alexandria and Winchester on the Ashby Gap trading route, which is now Route 50.
