Aldie is an unincorporated community located between Chantilly and Middleburg in Loudoun County, Virginia. The eastern part is suburbanized with numerous upscale communities recently built or under construction while most of its western and northern parts have so far largely preserved their bucolic character. Aldie's historic heart is the Village of Aldie that is located on the John Mosby Highway (U.S. Route 50) between Gilbert's Corner in a gap between the Catoctin Mountain and Bull Run Mountain, through which the Little River flows and traditionally served as the gateway to Loudoun Valley and beyond.As of 2014, the Aldie postal area (ZIP Code 20105) had a population of 11,420 people, a 569% increase since 2000 making it one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and the second fastest growing zip code in Virginia.HistoryAldie's beginnings were laid in 1765 when James and George Mercer established a mill at the location of the present historic edifice. The location was a natural choice, as the gap contained the intersection of the Belhaven road between Winchester and Alexandria and the Mountain road which ran northwest to Snickers Gap. By 1809 the Little River Turnpike was completed from Alexandria to the Mercer Mill, replacing the older rutted section of Belhaven Road. With the opening of the road, James Mercer's son, Charles Fenton Mercer, in a partnership with William Cooke, set out to develop a village on 30acre at the turnpike's western terminus. Mercer named the village for Castle Aldie, his Scottish clan's ancestral home.
