Forty-six years ago this month, the Mote-Morris House was added to the National Register of Historic Places. E.H. Mote, who served eight terms as Leesburg mayor, built the home for $9,000. In 1918, the house came into the possession of the Morris family, which resided there for the next 70 years. The home known for its Victorian Revival architecture contains some interesting features, including an L-shaped stairway leading to three bedrooms on the second floor, a clawfoot, cast-iron tub, and a four-story turret, or small tower. The Mote-Morris House is located at 1195 W. Magnolia St., Leesburg.
