An early rural branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded here on Tinner Hill. In 1915, the Town of Falls Church proposed an ordinance to segregate black and white residential sections. Local African Americans formed the Colored Citizens Protective League and fought this ordinance. In 1918, the league became the Falls Church and Vicinity Branch of the NAACP. Meeting in members' homes around Tinner Hill, the branch focused on public education, voter registration, travel regulations, and equal access to public services. Strategies developed by the branch were effectively used in other localities throughout the Civil Rights era.
