Great Falls  Historical Society of Virginia


The Great Falls Historical Society was organized in 1977 to promote community spirit by bringing the past into the present. We do this through: monthly programs on local history and people by local people who shaped history elsewhere, preservation efforts, publication of historical essays, collection of artifacts and photographs, oral history interviews, genealogical research, and tours and dinners at historic sites. We hope you will join in our activities and in supporting these efforts with your membership.  Our membership year is now January to December. Please renew or refresh your membership if  appropriate.

To learn more about our society or  peruse the wealth of local historical information  gathered by our members, use the menu selections above or use the links on the right edge of this page.

This website is currently under construction. Stay tuned for an all new website launching soon!
