As stated before, Loudoun County is somewhat of a backwards county but it is making progress to modernization. Its backwardness is not related to any type of technological deficiencies, but rather its mentality. Loudoun is stuck in generations past , its leaders are stuck in generations past. For example, a Confederate Statue had resided in front of the Courthouse since 1908. The County has antiquated ideas that still pervade today throughout the local Government; the ideas are no longer needed nor are they useful.
