On Friday, Sept. 9th a great time was had by all! The community stopped by for complimentary food and drinks, then had the opportunity to tour the updated Grange Hall and Historic Schoolhouse. Beautiful landscaping has been added to the grounds, the floors inside the Grange Hall were refinished and both buildings were freshly painted. Visitors met the Board, learned about volunteer opportunities, and most of all enjoyed time with their neighbors.

The Grange Hall and Historic Schoolhouse are both buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are owned by the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA).
Grange Hall was built in 1929 by the local farmers and their families as Grange Hall #738 for the Great Falls chapter of the Fraternal Order of Husbandry. This Craftsman style public assembly hall has been the site of private and community gatherings throughout its history.
The Historic Schoolhouse was built in 1889 as a one-room school, expanded in 1911 to include the Floris School, but ultimately, the school closed in 1922. From 1922 to 1959 it changed hands many times and eventually put up for sale in the early 1980’s. Great Falls residents pooled their resources and purchased the building, eventually donating it to the Fairfax County Park Authority.
