The Leesburg Downtown Business Association was formed in May of 2003 by a group of retail and professional business leaders. The goal of the association is to provide a unified movement for the overall betterment of our business community. As the association grows we strive to aid businesses in attracting a target audience to the historic shopping district of Leesburg. We also strive to raise public awareness of the strong business community that is growing here in downtown Leesburg.

Recently, the LDBA rebranded to the Historic Downtown Business Association (HDLA) to reflect our goal of serving both businesses and the community, and to open our membership to non-business entities.
