Significance: The Leesburg Historic District has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1975. It is significant as one of the earliest gold mining camps in Idaho. The buildings, associated cemetery, and other features reflect the long and varied history of the town, from the placer mining boom of the late 1860s, through years of small-time placer and lode mining operations, to the 1930s and early 1940s, the last years when Leesburg functioned as a community.
