For nearly 200 years, the Falmouth, Virginia community has come together to worship, learn, and celebrate life here. Please join us today to repair and maintain the Union Church Historic Site.
Listed with Virginia Department of Historic Resources as a contributing structure in the Falmouth Historic District in 1966
Listed as one of Virginia’s “most endangered” sites
Designated as a Virginia State Landmark in 2008
Individually listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2008
The Narthex (or the façade) of the old Falmouth Union Church is all that remains of this important structure. After years of neglect, the church stands in a state of serious disrepair. The Trustees of the Union Church Historic Site are committed to preserving the structure and interpreting its history.
Although in disuse, Union Church continues to serve as a focal point, giving cultural identity to the historic town of Falmouth. It is a visual statement of the Town’s past and a reminder of the much-needed role of preservation in the community. The Church deserves salvation as a fine example of Federal architecture in a religious structure and as a survivor of war, storms, and salvage assaults.
Help us preserve the Union Church Site as a Historic Falmouth, Virginia District landmark for future generations to appreciate!
