Falls Church Women's History
The story of Falls Church is best told through the lives of some of its most daring, accomplished, and consequential residents—the women of Falls Church.
Since its founding in 1699, Falls Church has been shaped by the women who saw a need and found a way to make their community better.
The Falls Church Women’s History Walk honors these pioneers, abolitionists, educators, entrepreneurs, politicians, historians, artists, and activists. Their civic engagement and dedication have helped establish Falls Church as a vibrant, responsive and well-loved community.
