Falmouth began as a farming and fishing town with an active wooden ship–building industry along the Presumpscot River Estuary. Through many changes, developments and additions, Falmouth today remains a growing community with extensive retail, health, retirement and service facilities.
In over 200 vintage photographs, members of the Falmouth Historical Society have taken readers on a nostalgic journey down memory lane.
