Falls Church is a small city, two square miles, full of history and charming urban gardens. The village of Falls Church was established by European settlers in 1699. By 1800 it was a community of small farms scattered around the Middle Turnpike (now Broad Street) and Old Courthouse Road (now Lee Highway) near The Falls Church, from which the city takes its name. Arlington County is an urban community bordering Falls Church on the east. The tour features Gothic Revival, Greek Revival, Arts and Crafts and Victorian architecture. Two homes are on the National Register of Historic Places and are Virginia Historic Landmarks. Gardens include four 100 year old holly trees, mature boxwoods delineating garden rooms, an herb garden and a garden of Victorian era plants.
