Falls Church History Panels

Falls Church History Panels - News Flash

A portion of the S. Washington St. Transit Plaza will include eight large, glass panels which will illustrate the history of Falls Church. These panels will tell the story of our community from the late 1600s to today with a transportation theme running throughout. 

The public is invited to review and comment on the panel drafts. A mock-up of the panels can be downloaded here (PDF). 

As you review the panel mock-ups, we ask that you keep in mind the following: 

  • Each page represents a single panel. We are limited with the amount of text and image sizes on each panel. The content will be etched in glass and there is not room for large copy additions. 
  • The current copy has been written and reviewed by local historians and various members of the community. However, we want to hear from you if you believe there is something factually inaccurate or something important to our community is missing.
  • If you have or know of a better image than the one included in each panel section, please share it if possible or tell us about it. 
  • We are taking suggestions for the title of the panel display - let us know your ideas! 

Please email your comments to the City Clerk by September 30.
