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: “John Marshall: The Final Founder” with Robert Strauss
July 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
JOHN MARSHALL: THE FINAL FOUNDER
At the turn of the 19th century, John Marshall became the fourth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. At the time, the Supreme Court met in the basement of the new Capitol building in Washington—which is just about what the executive and legislative branches thought of the judiciary. Marshall changed all that. He instigated many policies that shaped not only the Supreme Court but our entire government. And by making the Supreme Court stronger, he showed how it could bridge the divide between Congress and the President and create a three-way check and balance system that made our democracy viable. His contemporaries considered him the equal of other founding fathers: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin. The Final Founder asserts that title.
