Additional information:

The first church was built, just to the south of the current building, in Truro Parish in 1734. The name originated because it was located "near the falls" of the Potomac River. The name of the community developed around the church and adopted the name Falls Church. In 1763, church wardens George Washington and George William Fairfax were given the responsibility of contracting for a new church building. The brick building was designed and built by Colonel James Wren and was completed in 1769. It is the oldest church building north of Quantico. (Wolf Run Studios Calendar of historical places 1998)
