Trip Planner USA  /  Virginia  /  Loudoun County  /  Lovettsville
Lovettsville is a town in Loudoun County, located near the very northern tip of the Commonwealth of Virginia, United States. Settled primarily by German immigrants, the town was originally established in 1836.The population was 1613 at the 2010 census. The 2010-2012 American Community Survey (ACS) estimated the population at 1737.HistoryFollowing the 1722 Treaty of St. Albans which established the Blue Ridge Mountains as the buffer between Native Americans and white settlers, German immigrants began arriving in the northern Loudoun Valley to farm the rich topsoil. They established several villages, many constructed of log and wooden buildings, and began to expand their land holdings. Lovettsville was then called The German Settlement.In 1820 David Lovett subdivided his property into quarter-acre "city lots." As a result of the ensuing construction boom, the town was called Newtown. In 1828, the town was again renamed Lovettsville. In 1836 the Virginia General Assembly established Lovettsville as a town, but the town was not fully incorporated until 1876.During the Civil War, Lovettsville was an important transportation stop for Union troops crossing the Potomac River. Lovettsville was also among the few communities in Loudoun County to vote against secession.In 1940, Lovettsville was the site of a crash of a DC-3. It was the worst in US history at that time, killing 25 people including U.S. Senator Ernest Lundeen, and became known as the Lovettsville air disaster.
