Due to the pandemic, the Museums on the Green is currently closed to the public. However, we have created a dynamic new virtual series of talks with authors and historians (see what’s planned below) and a new virtual exhibit “Cash, Credit or Eels: Shopping Local in the 1820s” featuring new items from the archives each week. You can also read the latest issue of “Untold Tales of Falmouth” and catch up with previously published Tales here. Plus…there’s more to come!
We’ll announce the official opening for the 2020 season and additional programming here. We do not plan to host historic house tours or walking tours until mid-August 2020. Our historic trolley tours will not be held this year.
The Museums on the Green is also seeking submissions for its “Covid-19 Archives”. Individuals, businesses and groups are invited to submit journals, essays, poems, photographs, songs, videos and other items that illustrate what life has been like in Falmouth during the 2020 pandemic. Later, we’ll share these stories and artifacts with you–and preserve them for generations to come in our new archives collection. MORE INFO

VIRTUAL RE-ENACTMENT: Sheryl Faye as Susan B. Anthony
August 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFREE
SUSAN B. ANTHONY
Re-Enactor, Sheryl Faye
This is going to be the best party ever. One of the most famous women in American history is celebrating her 200th birthday this year—and you’re invited. Susan B. Anthony was born February 15, 1820 in Adams, Massachusetts. The famous social reformer and activist devoted her life to racial, gender and educational equality and played a prominent role in the women’s suffrage movement. We can only imagine the stories she’ll tell: perhaps she’ll share memories of her lifelong friend Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the time she was arrested for voting in her hometown of Rochester, New York, and convicted in a widely publicized trial, or the day she celebrated her 80th birthday in the White House at the invitation of President William McKinley. Meet this fascinating pioneer in person and find out why the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the right to vote became known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment.
