Fallsmead@50 Fun Facts
Origin of "Fallsmead"
Posted on January 4, 2018 9:48 PM by Melani Miller Harig
Kettler Brothers, the developer of Fallsmead, chose the name Fallsmead in the late 1960s because of the neighborhood's location in a meadow near Falls Road. Fallsmead is a combination of "Falls Road" and "Meadow."
