"'Big Chimneys,' named for its two large brick chimneys, is believed to have been the first permanent structure built on the land that is today within the City of Falls Church. The date of 1699 was inscribed on a stone placed in one chimney, and is thought to be the date the original structure was built.This is also the date from which the community of Falls Church traditionally accepts as its beginning."
