Falls Village is a village and census-designated place in the town of Canaan. The town takes its name from a waterfall in the Housatonic River. In 1979 the Falls Village District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The district represents about 70 acres that were built in the middle of the 19th century as a result of the area being selected as a station stop for the Housatonic Railroad in the early 1830s.
