From Watermelons to Motorcycles
First settled in the middle of the 19th century by Evander Lee and several of his brothers, Leesburg bears the name of it's founders family. Incorporated in 1875, it was the county seat of Sumpter County for a short period.
Leesburg is rooted deep in agriculture, with its most notable crop being watermelon. To celebrate the importance of this local crop, for nearly 30 years it hosted an annual Watermelon Festival. Leesburg moved its agricultural focus from watermelon to citrus, but several devastating freezes in the mid 1980's prompted growers to move their groves further south.
Like many small rural towns, the Great Depression placed great economic pressures on the area and it did benefit from a project of canals and downtown waterfront park that was orchestrated under the auspices of the Works Progress Administration.
With the exponential growth of nearby Orlando, the demand for housing in the area resulted in Leesburg becoming a destination for retirees. In the later part of the 20th century, the Leesburg Bikefest was created and became one of the areas most popular events drawing nearly 250,000 attendees.
