NRHP Reference Number


The Falling Creek Marker in Chesterfield County, is one of 16 markers erected along Virginia’s portion of the Jefferson Davis Highway between 1927 and 1947 as a memorial to Jefferson F. Davis, the only president of the Confederate States of America. The historic stone markers were paid for, erected, and maintained by the United Daughters of the Confederacy through local chapters and their affiliated state and national organization. The UDC campaign that extended the length of the Jefferson Davis Highway through former Confederate states is considered by the UDC to be one of its greatest accomplishments, and also featured UDC-sponsored maps, educational brochures and travel publications to promote the continental highway. The Falling Creek UDC Jefferson Davis Highway Marker was among those listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places under the UDC Commemorative Highway Markers along the Jefferson Davis Highway in Virginia MPD.  It is located within the Falling Creek Wayside, which is also the setting for the early 19th century stone Bridge at Falling Creek.
