Fairfax County's history of human activity began at least 3,000 years ago with an abundance of archaeological evidence. The area was inhabited by the Algonquian-speaking Potomac tribe when Europeans first arrived. One of the oldest European settlements in Fairfax County was Little Falls, a small village located near present-day Tysons Corner and Great Falls National Park which dates back to at least 1700 A.D..The land comprising Fairfax County was originally part of Prince William County (1653–1903), formed on May 1, 1691 from portions that had previously been under Elizabeth Cittie incorporation as a separate county between 1637/38 and 1730/31; it later became known as Fauquier (1759–1801) after Baron Thomas Fauconer who served as Governor for both Virginia Colony and Maryland Colony prior to their separation into two states during his term in office; then Alexandria City & Districts (1801–46) before becoming Alexandria Co., VA until its name change to Arlington Co.
