A Falmouth historic walk is enhanced this year with the beautiful ceramic birdhouses created by Falmouth High School students in collaboration with the Falmouth Museums on the Green. This is a self guided tour through historic Falmouth Village and 28 different homes have these unique birdhouses located in trees in their front yards. Each of the birdhouses was painstakingly created and inspired by architectural, cultural or historic significance of the particular house they selected.
The Captain’s Manor Inn is proud to be a part of this endeavor. We are listed as number 12 on the tour and are under the name of Mostly Hall. The Inn was dubbed Mostly Hall back in the 1800’s when a young man visiting the home with his mother said “look ma, it’s mostly hall” upon stepping into the grande entrance. The name became part of town lore and the house is actually on the National Historic Registry under the name of Mostly Hall.
We share some pictures below and a video of students who made a birdhouse: http://youtu.be/BoNLHNVH2OM

Portals and Passageways @ Highfield Hall is a incredible undertaking where the show features the work of 25 regional artists who have created artworks throughout Highfield Hall’s remarkable mansion and the surrounding grounds and gardens. Annie Dean, Highfield’s director of programs and exhibitions is the curator for the show. In creating the show Annie sought to have visitors explore the property and the adjacent Beebe Woods coming from a new point of view. The concept is that visitors will embark on passageways that will guide them to new places and portals that encourage a new point of view. A number of temporary environmental works will be on display between June 29th and September 7th as well as some more permanent sculptures that were installed in the spring. Artisans include those skilled in sculpture, fiber art, landscape design, glass blowing, photography and painting. The exhibition is created as a walking tour that starts inside Highfield Mansion and then continues through the grounds.
