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

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.
