Falmouth Museums on the Green: History in our Backyard

Falmouth Museums on the Green will open for the season on June 6th and this year promises to be the best yet. Don’t miss the history walk on May 22! Take a leisurely 3 mile stroll from the Museums on the Green to the shoreline and back.  Meet some of Falmouth’s historical characters along the way.  Prizes given for best costumes from any era, but costumes not required to enjoy this event.  Refreshments at the finish line.  Great opportunity to get some exercise, learn about Falmouth’s past, and support the Museums on the Green. Check out more information about what promised to be a fun event here!

Falmouth Museums on the Green is currently raising funds to restore the Conant House. As one of the oldest structures in the Falmouth chVillage Historic District, the circa 1730 Conant House is a keystone of Museums on the Green, and Falmouth.

The building has not been renovated for over 50 years and is in dire need of work–from the roof to the foundation. Today it houses an exhibit area, offices and a research center–all critical functions for our mission.

The project will preserve for future generations an important example of 18th century architecture at the historic center of Falmouth, around the Village Green. Our goal is to Restore and Renew Conant House, creating an interior that is fully functional in the 21st century, enhancing our ability to fulfill our mission.

Click here to help Falmouth Museums on the Green reach their goal of 1.3M, necessary to bring a piece of Falmouth’s history back to its original glory. Don’t forget to take a look at their project plans – the restoration looks incredible!
