The Leesburg Heritage Museum is conveniently located in the historic Woman’s Club Building, at 111 S. Sixth Street (between Main St. & Magnolia St.), which was used for many years later by Lassiter-Ware Insurance. The museum faces the Life Stream Building which is the tallest building in Leesburg.

The museum has an interesting history all its own. It has been home to the Leesburg Library, the Leesburg Chamber of Commerce, several civic clubs, the Leesburg High School Prom and the Poinsettia Ball. The museum is crammed with artifacts and items that help tell the story about Leesburg – from the days that citrus was king and the popular Watermelon Festival was a highlight for kids and adults alike, to the Leesburg Centennial in 1957 and gathering places such as the Magnolia Hotel and the Lake View Hotel.
