The town's name was derived from the name of the Henslee Family which were early settlers in the community. A post office was established in 1837. The Rome & Decatur Railroad (later Southern Railway) began rail service through the town in 1888. The rail line was abandoned in 1948. Leesburg was incorporated in 1958. Weiss Dam, completed in 1961, is approximately five miles southwest of this marker.
