Why Coton & Rye

The land where Coton & Rye sits was desired by many for its location on the Potomac River. One of our original land owners, Thomas Lee, whom Leesburg is named after, had many notable sons including two signers of the Declaration of Independence. In 1796, Thomas Lee’s son, Thomas Ludwell Lee and his family made the land their home and named it Coton Farm after their ancestral home in England. They grew wheat, corn, operated a distillery, and a meat house. Stories of the land include hosting General Marquis de Lafayette, operating an ordinary (similar to a tavern), and Mrs. Lee hosting American soldiers for dinner during the War of 1812. While the land exchanged hands many times over the year, it’s always exhibited a history rich in hospitality and still does to this day.
