Historic Records & Deed Research
The Historic Records and Deed Research Division maintains county court records dating from the formation of Loudoun County in 1757.
- Loudoun contains one of the most complete collections of court records in Virginia, and is one of only a few of Virginia’s ninety-eight counties whose records have not been destroyed by fire, war, or environmental factors.
- We encourage you to research our online indexes, helpful links, and research tips prior to your visit.
- Please note no food or drink is allowed in the Historic Records.
- Copies of deeds and land records can be obtained by contacting the Historic Records & Deed Research Division by email or phone at 703-737-8775. Please note that the Historic Records office cannot conduct research, clients must have specific information regarding the documents being requested.
