Lovettsville Real Estate Information

With just nine hundred residents, Lovettsville is one of the smallest towns in Loudoun County. Nestled in the northernmost tip of Virginia near the state’s borders with Maryland and West Virginia, Lovettsville is relatively distant from major cities. Originally established in 1722 after Treaty of St. Albans, German settlers came to the area in order to use the rich topsoil that was perfect for farming. At that time the area was simply known as the German Settlement. It wasn’t until 1820 when David Lovett purchased the land and created subdivisions that its present name was chosen.

Residents often make the short drive north to the banks of the Potomac River. Not only does it have a gorgeous view but it also serves as a recreational area in the warmer months. Paths that line the river are perfect for biking, skating, or jogging. It’s not uncommon to see residents taking a plunge along the banks either! Closer to home, the Lovettsville Community Center, Town Square, and the Town Green are the three primary recreational areas. The Lovettsville Community Park is the most popular because of its massive pools, large fields, and multiple open spaces perfect for gathering and picnics.

Amongst Lovettsville’s long list of annual events and festivities, the community hosts an Independence Day Celebration, Cruise-In Car Show, and Arbor Day. Because of Lovettsville’s German roots, Oktoberfest is the biggest event in town and is a week-long event of food, entertainment, and good company. Besides events in town, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is just a few miles away and is one of the area’s most visited attractions.
