The Cherry Hill Farmhouse is a historic house located in Falls Church, Virginia. The beautiful Greek Revival style house was built in 1845 and was owned by rich farmers of the region. The Greek Revival style house is now the property of the city of Falls Church, which runs it as a museum. The site is open to the public for tours and there are special tours for children available, where they get to dress up in period costumes and play traditional games. The house and the farms adjoining it also make for a cozy wedding venue.
Established first in 1733 as part of the official Church of England, the existing brick building was designed by James Wren in 1769. Much of the original construction still remains. During the Revolutionary War, Falls Church served as a recruiting headquarters for the Colonial army. Activities subsided then until 1830 when it closed altogether. It was reopened during the Civil War as a hospital and a stable, causing damage to the vestry that can still be seen today. In 1873, the church was officially reorganized as an Episcopal church, and the congregation remains very active.
