A neighbourhood in Sterling VA that likes to think it is part of Great Falls despite the fact that Great Falls is in a different county. Residents of Lowes Island will tell you that they live in "Potomac Falls", as they think Sterling is a ghetto. Although real ghettos do not have Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Maserati dealerships, Sterling has all three, as well as a Nordstrom and a Wegmans. It is likely that Lowes Islanders do not want you to know they live in Sterling because the AOL national headquarters are there.
In 2008, Donald Trump purchased the Lowes Island Golf Club, this inspired every single Lowes Islander to buy a golf cart. Loudoun County got tired of Lowes Island's superiority complex and redistricted their high school students into the same school as the kids from Sugarland Run, the poorest neighbourhood in Loudoun County. In Lowes Island's attempt to keep the poor, brown residents of Sugarland Run out of their community, a high schooler in Lowes Island must walk over 4 miles to get to Dominion High School.
