Falls Church is a small independent city bordered by Fairfax and Arlington Counties. High-rise buildings with Falls Church addresses are not inside the city limits, but located in neighboring Bailey's Crossroads, Annandale, Idylwood, Jefferson, Seven Corners, and Lake Barcroft. The city is named for the "Falls Church" founded in 1734 there. Falls Church formed in the late 17th century at the ancient crossroads of two Native American trails that later became the Leesburg Pike (VA Route 7) and Lee Highway (VA Route 29). This intersection of important roads allowed Falls Church to grow and expand after the Civil War, and in 1875 it was incorporated as a town. By 1910, the city had become the largest in Fairfax County, and it continued to grow well into the 20th century. In 1948, the city of Falls Church was granted independent status from Fairfax County and was named All-America City in 1962. Today, the Greater Falls Church Area thrives at the center of Northern Virginia's technology and retail corridors and serves as the District's gateway to Fairfax County. So while Falls Church is steadily becoming a hub for many leading international high-tech firms, it still retains its small town charm.
