2021 Falls Church Women’s History Walk
Come join us for a stroll in the fresh air of spring time and learn about the fascinating women who built this community.
44 Stops or “Her-Story” Stations along The Walk showcase the activism, the commitment, and the contributions of notable women in Falls Church
from the 1600s through today. We hope these women’s stories will inspire you to make a difference.
The Walk will be a self-guided 2-mile loop from Falls Church City Hall to Cherry Hill Farmhouse. Participants may start at any point along the route, but please note - docents will be available to provide guidance and directions at these three locations along the route: Big Chimneys Park, Tinner Hill Park and City Hall. This year’s Walk Grand Marshal honorees are Alma Amaker, Doris Newcomb, Sally Phillips, Ellen Salsbury, Mary Ellen Shaw, and Marie Hirst Yochim. While these honorees will be at Big Chimneys Park briefly at noon, their “Her-Story” Stations will be posted at the park for the duration of the Walk.
Due to Covid concerns and unlike years past, no gatherings are planned prior to the beginning or the ending times of the event.
· The “Her-Story” Stations will be open between 11:00 AM-2:00 PM for you to visit at your leisure.
· All participants are asked to adhere to mask and social distancing guidance.
· Restaurants & businesses along the route will be offering opportunities for rest stops
· A limited number of brochures with map will be available at Tinner Hill Park, City Hall, & Big Chimneys Park.
