Preserving Falmouth's Heritage Falmouth Historical Society 

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 the history of Falmouth, Maine, through our collections and outreach to the community.  We provide educational programs, assist with research into local families and history, and conduct tours of the Falmouth Heritage Museum.  The Society is a non-profit organization.

     Museum Hours

    The Falmouth Heritage Museum is open!  It is also open to visitors by appointment.

    We are open most Tuesdays.  Check our calendar to see exactly which Tuesdays we are open.  If Tuesday's aren't convenient, we are happy to open the Museum for an individual, family, or group.  Please call ahead (207-781-4727) to set up an appointment or to arrange for a volunteer knowledgeable about your area of interest (such as family history research) to be here.  You can also reach us at

    Winter (late October-May)

    The museum is closed due to the high cost of utilities and maintenance for a 19th century house during a Maine winter.  Safety of our visitors and volunteers is a concern—despite our best efforts to clear snow and ice, the area around the steps is often treacherous.

    Summer (June-October 2022)

      Most Tuesdays, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
