Established in 1787, was previously called Chinn’s Crossroads but was renamed because of its location midway between Alexandria and Winchester. Middleburg was more or less a staging point for those making the journey for east to west. The Civil the Colonial spirit lives on at the little inns, shops and restaurants in the historic downtown area. Middleburg was an important Civil War site as well; it was used by Confederate Colonel John S. Mosby as a base camp from which to raid nearby Union outposts.
