Strolling through Leesburg, Florida, searching for Scotties. Not yet…to come. Here is what we found. “Leesburg is Lake County’s oldest city. The first pioneers arrived in 1843 and the first permanent settlers came in 1857. The Lakefront City was incorporated in July 12, 1875. Leesburg has been known as the Watermelon Capitol and the Bass Capitol, in addition to being a leading citrus area.” More photos coming. Instagram photos.
