Falmouth is a census-designated place (CDP) on the north bank of the Rappahannock River. Part of Stafford County, Virginia, it was established in 1728 by an act of the Virginia General Assembly. The port town served the people living north of the river that was within the Northern Neck holdings of Lord Fairfax. Robert "King" Carter, his agent, and the Carter family were a major part of the development of the town during the colonial era.
In 1776, Falmouth became part of Stafford County when the county redrew its lines. Prior to this, the town was part of King George County. In the 1800s, Falmouth was a stip on the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad. It was later occupied by the Union forces during the American Civil War. Today, the residential community is a suburb of Fredericksburg. It has a total area of 3.2 square miles and a population of 4,274 people as of the 2010 census.
Because the CDP dates back to the 18th century, there are many establishments and landmarks that depict the history of the area. This includes the following:
These sights have all been added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) individually. Another historical place in Falmouth is the Shelton Cottage. Although it's not listed on the NRHP, it represents what a working man during the colonial period might aspire to possess one day.
The Historic Port of Falmouth Park is owned and operated by the Stafford County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities. Located on the Rappahannock River, swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents, slippery rockers, hidden debris and drop-offs. However, the park does feature a sandy beach, natural area, athletic field and walking trail for families to enjoy their time at.
