Foul Mouth by artist Jenny Fragosa will be on exhibit at the Falmouth Museums on the Green from August 29th through October 11th. A fun play on words in the title of the exhibit which is based on a look back at history in the town of Falmouth.
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

Falmouth Museums on the Green opened for the season today with two exhibitions.
The first exhibit called “A Plate Full of History” shares the history of Falmouth as the third largest whaling port on the East Coast. In fact more that half of the men in Falmouth were involved in the whaling trade in the 19th century.
The second exhibit is entitled “There’s a War On: The Falmouth Homefront 1941-45”. The exhibit features artifacts, posters, clothing and oral histories as shared by local Falmouth residents.
Admission is normally $5 and is free today on opening day.
A little later in the season another exhibit opens entitled “A Little Bit of Luck” which will run from September 1 until October 12. In partnership with the local Falmouth restaurant , La Civetta, the work of art students who live in Emilia Romagna will be featured. In Italy a symbol of good luck is the owl (la civetta) and the artwork will feature the owl depicted in paintings, drawings and collage work.

The Red Chair has continued on its journey of a Better Way to Stay in Cape Cod and has arrived at The Captain’s Manor in in Falmouth. What a wonderful time visiting some of Cape Cod’s great landmarks including lovely Inns , museums, eateries, beaches, and quaint villages such as Falmouth Village’s main street.
What I found as we chaperoned the chair is that it is famous ! When we went over to the Queens Buyway shops a local bicycle rider yelled out “Is that THE red chair” and we were happy to reply it sure is! The next stop was Ben & Bill’s Chocolate emporium where one of the staff made a point of going to get the local paper and show the rest of her co-workers the article that had been written. I had no sooner arrived at Highfield Hall and was taking the chair out for its picture in the sunken garden when two of my favorite people from the Hall, Janet and Pat, came out and said they were just taking about the Red Chair the other day and saying wouldn’t it be great if it made a visit here. Off to the Visitor Center where the cry went out “The Red Chair is here”. My personal favorite was after taking some great shots over at the Nobska Lighthouse a gentlemen made a point of jogging over from across the street saying he just had to see what the fuss was about with THE Red Chair.
Just across from The Captain’s Manor Inn is the Falmouth Historic Society on the Falmouth Village Green. One of the favorite pastimes for visitors is the free 90 minute guided walk past Falmouth’s historic homes and places. The walk begins at 10 am starting May 31 and every Tuesday throughout the summer.
One of our guests from Canada last summer took some wonderful pictures of the Museums on the Green and their gardens that are shown below:
The walk starts and ends at the Hallett Barn Visitor’s Center on the grounds of the Falmouth Museums on the Green, 55 Palmer Ave.
