The farmhouse was built in 1845 and is furnished in a mid-19th century style to reflect the period when it was a 73 acre farm. There is also an original timber barn on the property. Both structures are in Cherry Hill park in the heart of the City of Falls Church.

This is a lovely, historic home that is mostly likely overlooked by visitors to the DC area....especially interesting for people interested in the Civil War period.

It is a very nice house to see how rich farm people lived in virgina before national war between north and sohght. Has a lot of old furniture, kitchen stuff. also some toys for that years. You can figure out how these persons lived in that house.

Sometimes the Cherry Hill Farmhouse is open for tours - it is vintage Civil Wart - but even when it is not, this is a lovely place to take children. On Saturdays, go to the farmers market next door for crepes or donuts, take the kids to the playground that is right there, stop in at the library across the... More

This was a nice relaxing stop. The park is small but very comfortable and a great place to have lunch if the weather is nice

and skip the house.... or...if you have 15 minutes to spend, check it out. Not what this Southerner expected. The best was a gorgeous server/buffet in the "might have been dining room", probably master bedroom, that is a " period piece"....

What a great house! So many house museums in this area show how the elite lived, but this house is unique in that it housed a "regular" family of the time who didn't have servants and who ran their farm themselves. Rachel was an excellent, professional, and knowledgeable guide who was able to tailor the tour to my interests and... More

The History on the Cherry Hill Farmhouse is interesting. The entire visit should take you about 15 minutes, maybe 20 if you read everything.

If you've seen other historic houses in the Mid-Atlantic such as Mt. Vernon, the Biltmore, Monticello or the houses in Charleston, you won't be too impressed with the Cherry Hill Farmhouse. It's a rather unremarkable two-story three-bedroom house dating back to the mid 19th Century. The most interesting aspect of it is that while many historic houses such as the... More
