Purcellville is a great small town to raise children where everyone knows everyone. The town it's self has endless opportunities to take advantage of and offers a wide variety of physical things to do! Although you do have to commute to either Winchester or Leesburg for actual clothing, Purcellville is still a great place to live.

Purcellville, Virginia is a lovely place. Purcellville is constantly growing and becoming a family friendly town that offers a wide variety of small businesses, restaurants, and entertainment. The education in Western Loudoun, Purcellville, is held to a great standard. This is a great location to raise a family because it is a quiet and laid back town that is close enough to the city, with a great community! Everyone who grows up here, stays!
A lot of people my age simultaneously claim they would never want to come back after college that it's too sleepy, too rich, too stuffy. And while Purcellville is within the NOVA bubble and there is a certain amount of preppyness along with a small town feel compared to neighboring areas in my opinion growing up here it had a balance. Development has come to town since I graduated and I do not know as of yet whether that will drastically alter the Purcellville community but the area is successful, safe, and a great place to raise a family and educate your children.
