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: “Ghosts of Martha’s Vineyard” with Thomas Dresser
March 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
GHOSTS OF MARTHA’S VINEYARD
Thomas Dresser never saw a ghost or thought they existed—until he sat down to write this book. So what changed the local historian’s mind? Too many eerie tales that have stood the test of time. Like the story of the whaleman’s widow who flicks the lights on and off, tosses wine glasses around and appears by the fireplace of a popular Edgartown pub. Or the tale of specter Scottie who has spooked students at the Tisbury School for decades, and the accounts of four-year-old Elizabeth Vanderhoof, who drowned in 1928 and has been seen on the family homestead in Aquinnah ever since. Creepy campgrounds. Unusual inns. A jailhouse that will give you the jitters. As you hear about haunted happenings from all six island towns, you’ll also learn about the Island’s not so spooky history. Thomas has lived and worked on Martha’s Vineyard for twenty five years and has written several historical books, ranging from African Americans on Martha’s Vineyard to Martha’s Vineyard in World War II.
