Leesburg Today Previews Mid-July Opening

Excitement is building as we approach the opening of our new building on Main Street.  Margaret Morton, of Leesburg Today, covers the story of the new building, how we obtained it, what we're doing to it, and when we expect to open:

As with any old building—and the exact age of the structure is difficult to assess—discoveries abound, as additions and deletions that had been covered up over the years revealed both answers and more mysteries. “Every time we discover something new, it sets up a further question,” Scott said.


One of the best things about an old warehouse-style building—and the bulk of the structure—is that it is relatively easy to adapt to a new use. After removing the plywood and taking in the dimensions of the large space, crews cut the floor apart to lay in new plumbing, including cast iron sewer pipes for longevity. A sluice, similar to what once was common in dairy barns, runs through the middle of the production area, so the floor can be hosed down at the end of the day’s production.
