Preserving Falmouth's Heritage Falmouth Historical Society 

  • Welcome

Welcome to the Falmouth Historical Society.  Preservation has been our mission since we were founded in 1966.  And it still is.  Our members volunteer their time to promote interest in, and awareness of, Falmouth history and heritage through acquisitions of Falmouth-related artifacts, educational programs, genealogical research, general inquiries and tours of our Museum and Barn.  The Society is a non-profit organization.

Tidewater Update

10/15/19: During the annual meeting, FHS members heard about the historic buildings at Tidewater Farms and the proposal being considered by the Town of Falmouth to conduct a feasibility study including options for preservation.

10/16/19: The Falmouth Town Council voted unanimously against funding the feasibility study.  The town manager will explore options that would allow salvaging portions of the buildings for use in a new building envisioned by Falmouth Land Trust as well as a placement of markers commemorating the historic nature of the property.
