Forestville is a family-oriented community in Great Falls, Virginia, that was the site of the first Great Falls post office in the late 1870s. Forestville is also home to the historic Forestville Schoolhouse, a well-preserved example of the traditional one-room schoolhouses that were typical of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Today the schoolhouse is available for rental for special events and parties.
Many Forestville homes are stately brick estates ranging from $800K to multi-million dollar properties on generous lots. Residents prize the close proximity to the Great Falls Park and the District while appreciating the rural, country setting that allows for many equine activities.
Elementary-age children attend the Forestville Elementary School, one of the noted Fairfax County elementary schools in the area. There are also 20 private schools offering different curriculums to meet varying student and family needs.
