Leesburg Methodist Church

-A A +A
1853, 1879, 1890s, 1951, 1986. 107 Market St.

This structure indicates mid-nineteenth-century prosperity in the Northern Piedmont with its elaborate pilasters, stone Ionic capitals, and molded brick trim. The tall windows of the piano nobile create a raised, light-filled nave; the basement story contains a vestibule and parish hall. The interior has been remodeled and smoothed over, but the papyrus-leaf columns supporting the balcony are original. The pews and tin ceiling date from the 1890s.
