Seeing the Sights
The Falls Church, for which the city was named, was founded in 1732. The congregation’s first church building was erected in 1733 near a road leading to the falls of the Potomac River – giving rise to the name that was adopted by the town. The present church building was completed in 1769 and served as a recruiting station during the Revolution, and during the Civil War, as a Federal hospital, and later as a stable. The building, which serves as an Episcopal Church, has been restored to its 18th century appearance and is open to visitors.
