Explore Falmouth’s earliest and most mysterious burial ground on our new 45-minute guided walking tour. Hear the forgotten stories of the town’s first settlers, discover the final resting places of many Revolutionary War soldiers, and view the headstones of the unfortunate who were lost at sea, killed by a whale, struck by lightning, or fell off a wharf and drowned. Your guide will also reveal the symbolic—and sometimes bizarre—meanings behind the epitaphs and engravings within.
