Falls Church Presbyterian Church, 2000 (Davis)

Falls Church Presbyterian Church is located at Fairfax and East Broad Streets. In 1856, Dr. Simon J. Groot built a hall here for Falls Church's first Presbyterian congregation. Groot Hall served many functions until it was torn down in 1925.

The Gothic-style church, built in 1884, was the first stone building in Falls Church. More than half of the original structure remains in use today.
