Loudoun Museum

The Loudoun Museum preserves and interprets the artifacts of Loudoun’s three-century journey to let both Loudouners and visitors gain a sense of what Loudoun has been as it continues to evolve. Visitors to the museum may view the portraits of Isabella Elgin Paxson and her son, Charles Paxon, executed by plain painter, Timothy A. Herrington. The Elgin and Paxson families had deep roots in Loudoun County. Charles, a member of Mosby’s Rangers, was killed at the battle of Loudoun Heights in January, 1864.
