There are approximately 751 (2013 census) people residing in the town established in 1787. Since the early 1900s, Middleburg began welcoming visitors that descended on the town for foxhunting and steeplechasing. The village soon earned a reputation as the "Nation's Horse and Hunt Capital," attracting prominent visitors from across the United States.
After a drive through the beautiful Virginia countryside you will find yourself in the one signal light town, with plenty of shopping for after the races. Treat yourself to an ice cream and then head to the pink box. Take notice of the plaque dedicated to former resident Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Find the stone arch with a rabbit and a fun hog watching over the box, and under a rock.
There's much to see and do in Middleburg, http://www.middleburg.com/attractions.html It was a nice visit for us after touring the Nation's capital, and noticing that it was lacking in letterboxes we decided to remedy the situation. If you are at all in the neighborhood, stop on by!
