Historic Properties Rental Services: Dranesville Tavern
11919 Leesburg Pike
Herndon, Virginia 20170
Built in 1824, Dranesville Tavern was one of five taverns located near the Dranesville Crossroads. It quickly found a steady flow of regular customers among many farmers and drovers moving grain and livestock from Leesburg and western Virginia to the ports of Alexandria and Georgetown.
In 1865, the Alexandria Gazette described Dranesville Tavern as "one of the finest roadside inns in the State of Virginia." That tradition of excellence continues today at this beautifully restored Virginia Historic Landmark, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
