Falling-Waters is a historic town located on the Potomac River in the extreme northeast corner of the West Virginia panhandle. It's situated along the Williamsport Pike (U.S. Route 11) north of Martinsburg. As of the 2000 census, Falling Waters had a population of 7,043 residents. The community was established in 1815 and due to its ideal location between Hagerstown and Martinsburg on the Potomac River, it was always a popular residential area. Several stately old homes are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In recent years, Falling Waters has become a "bedroom community" for residents who commute to nearby cities, as well as cities as far away as Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Falling Waters was the site of two battles during the American Civil War: the Skirmish of Falling Waters in July 1861 and the Battle of Williamsport in July 1863 during the Gettysburg Campaign. Other nearby sites of historic interest are the Edward Colston House and Harmony Cemetery. Maidstone-on-the-Potomac is a historic home and farm near Falling Waters that consists of a 218-acre tract with a main house dating from 1741. The house was built by Evan Watkins who operated Watkins Ferry on the Potomac, which was used by George Washington and General Edward Braddock.

Falling Waters Weather & Climate

The extreme eastern portion of West Virginia ,where West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia meet, generally has a humid continental climate. This means warm to hot, humid summers and cool to cold winters, increasing in severity with elevation. However, the weather in all parts of the state is subject to rapid changes. Slightly more than half the rainfall occurs from April to September. In addition to persistent cloudy skies caused by the damming of moisture by the Alleghenies, West Virginia also experiences some of the most frequent precipitation in the nation. Snow usually lasts only a few days in the lower sections but may persist for weeks in the higher mountain areas. However, severe weather is somewhat less prevalent in West Virginia than in most other eastern states, and it ranks among the least tornado-prone states east of the Rockies.
