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

TERROR TO THE WICKED
America’s First Trial by Jury That Ended a War and Helped to Form a Nation
The year: 1638. The setting: Providence, near Plymouth Colony. The crime: A runaway indentured servant brutally stabs and robs a young Nipmuc tribesman returning home from trading beaver pelts. With his last breath, the victim reveals the details of the attack to Providence’s governor, Roger Williams. An all-out manhunt, dramatic capture and tension-filled murder trial follows. It is the first trial the two-year-old Plymouth Colony has faced. The stakes are high. Would the twelve, white male jurors, picked from a total population of five hundred and fifty, be tempted to protect a cold-blooded murderer and Pequot War veteran over the life of a tribesman who had fought in a war against them? Or would their groundbreaking judicial decision forever set the standard for American justice?
