Great Falls, VA Homes For Sale
A large affluent community in northern Fairfax County, Virginia, Great Falls was touted by CNN/Money Magazine as the nation's Top Earning Town in 2011. Named for the Great Falls of the Potomac River, the bedroom suburb covers a large 17-mile swath of land and is home to roughly 17,000 residents.
Great Falls was the site of George Washington's 17-year effort to construct the Patomack Canal. The canal was supposed to facilitate the transportation of merchant goods but the river's capricious nature limited transit to one month per year. In its day, the canal supported a company town named Matildaville. Today, remains of the town and canal are managed by the Great Falls National Park.
