Falls Church Virginia Information and Highlights

Taking its name from The Falls Church, an 18th-century Anglican parish, Falls Church gained township status within Fairfax County in 1875. In 1948, it was incorporated as the City of Falls Church, an independent city with county-level governance status. It is also referred to as Falls Church City.

History

When the City of Falls Church was incorporated in 1948, its boundaries included only the central portion of the area historically known as Falls Church; those other areas, often still known as Falls Church (although they lie in Fairfax and Arlington counties), are considered here for historical reasons. By 1900, Falls Church was the largest town in Fairfax County, with 1,007 residents. Many of the residents at that time had come from the northern states or elsewhere. A 1904 map of the town shows 125 homes and 38 properties from two to 132 acres. The town had become a center of commerce and culture, with 55 stores and offices and seven churches.

Location

According to the United States census bureau, the city has a total area of 2.0 square miles, in all of its lands. Falls Church is the smallest independent city by area in Virginia. Since independent cities in Virginia are considered county-equivalents, it is also the smallest county-equivalent in the United States by area.

The center of the city is the crossroads of Virginia State Route 7 (Broad Street/Leesburg Pike) and U.S. Route 29 (Washington Street/Lee Highway).

Tripps Run, a tributary of the Cameron Run Watershed, drains two-thirds of the City of Falls Church while the Four Mile Run watershed drains the other third. Four Mile Run flows at the base of Minor's Hill, which overlooks Falls Church on its north, and Upton's Hill, which bounds the area to its east.

Falls Church, Virginia, gets 44 inches of rain per year. The U.S. average is 37. Snowfall is 7 inches. The average US city gets 25 inches of snow per year. The number of days with any measurable precipitation is 116.
