Upper Leesburg
Reach #38

The "watermen," of the Maurice River, the old-time fishermen who made their living on the river, referred to their fishing and hauling spots by the names they attributed to the reaches. One of these reaches, Upper Leesburg, borders the edge of the community of Leesburg. The reach is just south of Penny Hill on the eastern shore of the Maurice River. The meadows there were banked at one time. Joseph Reeves, Sr., and others were familiar with this section of the river.

For more information about the Leesburg vicinity, see Reach #39.
