Tinner Hill Historic Park

A Pivotal Site for African American History

Encounter African American history first hand at the Tinner Hill Historic Park in Falls Church, Virginia. This park is the site of what was home to Joseph and Elizabeth Tinner, the couple who fought segregation laws after the borders of neighbouring towns were redrawn cutting directly through their thriving community. Their actions led to the first rural branch of the NAACP. Visit the park’s picnic pavilion and see the Zig Zag Monument, a sculpture that follows the original location of the segregation line.
