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 new virtual exhibits featuring items from the archives. 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!
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 TALK: “Citizen Reporters” with Stephanie Gorton
February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
S.S. McClure, Ida Tarbell, and the Magazine That Rewrote America
He was an Irish immigrant, who, despite bouts of mania, overthrew his impoverished upbringing and bent the New York media world to his will. She was his steadying hand, a notoriously fearless journalist who defied the gender expectations of her time. Meet S.S. McClure and Ida Tarbell. Together, with their reporters Ray Stannard Baker and Lincoln Steffens, they created one of the most influential magazines in American history: McClure’s. It drew over 400,000 readers and published the groundbreaking stories that defined the Gilded Age, including the investigation of Standard Oil that toppled the Rockefeller monopoly. This scrappy little group reported on labor unrest and lynching, published exposes of municipal corruption, and brought readers face to face with a nation mired in dysfunction. Naturally, this made some people mad. Including at least one president who called them “muckrakers” and “forces of evil.” From its meteoric rise to its spectacularly swift and dramatic combustion, this powerhouse magazine cemented investigative journalism’s crucial role in democracy and gave America a new voice. It also introduced Americans to the voices of Willa Cather, Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Joseph Conrad, and many others along the way.
