Fertile soil and abundant streams at former Indian cross trails provided ideal farmland around a prominent 18th-century-era church that gave the town of Falls Church its name. The first known home, Big Chimneys, was built around 1699. A mere seven miles from downtown Washington, DC, Falls Church sat close enough to witness the nations capital burn during the War of 1812. Once the largest farm population center in what was then Fairfax County, Falls Church has slowly evolved over the past three centuries. The town has seen the coming of Revolutionary independence and was transformed by the Civil War. Since 1900, residents have experienced the growth of the postWorld War II suburban ideal and felt the impact of the civil rights movement, ultimately developing Falls Church into a unique town with established religious, educational, and civic institutions amidst urban sprawl.

Cathy Taylor is a Falls Church resident who is actively involved in local preservation. In Historic Falls Church, she networked with community members entrenched in the citys heritage to select photographs from local archives and other collections. These images demonstrate how a universally familiar national history fascinatingly transformed this farming village into a quaint railroad, streetcar, and commuter suburb of Washington, DC, eventually becoming the current independent Little City.
