Living a Charmed Life in Purcellville VA. The adorable town of Purcellville was settled in 1764. Named after prominent businessman Valentine Purcell. Just imagine what Purcellville was like in the frontier times! You still get all the “PIONEER” feels downtown, including a renovated grain mill turned restaurant and a former Buick dealership turned whiskey distillery The W&OD Trail, built on the bed of the former Washington & Old Dominion railway line, ends in downtown, adjacent to the now restored Purcellville Train Station, bringing in cyclists from across the region.

There are activities for all ages in western Loudoun County. Some of the hot spots to bring the kids are The Tipped Cow, next to Monk’s BBQ, Gruto’s on Main Street and everyone’s favorite roller skating rink Bush Tabernacle which still looks exactly like it did in the 1950s.

Of course Loudoun is known for wine but one of its rare gems is Catoctin Creek Distilling Company. Owners Becky and Scott Harris founded the first Loudoun distillery since Prohibition in 2009 and Becky Harris is the most recognizable female whisky maker in America today. Buy bottles of brandy, gin and flagship Roundstone Rye on the premises and try a craft sampler cocktail at the horseshoe-shaped bar.

Ask Carmen @LoudounThrift and I am sure she will agree that Purcellville has amazing thrift stores! The heart of downtown has several thrift and antique stores including Re-Love It,It’s Bazaar, Nostalgia Boutique, Blue Ridge Hospice Thrift Shop are just a few of my favorites. You will have to check it out for yourself one of these fall days.
