People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Falmouth, Maine, USA? 

Falmouth, Cumberland, Maine, USA
The Town of Falmouth was first settled in the 1600’s and received its first recognition as a Town in 1658. It received its name in honor of a small village at the mouth of the Fal River in Cornwall, England, from which some of the earliest settlers came. The original boundaries of the town extended all the way from the Spurwink River in Scarborough up the coast to a point opposite Clapboard Island. This covered most of what is now Westbrook, Cape Elizabeth, South Portland Portland and Falmouth. Cape Elizabeth and South Portland broke away in 1765, Portland in 1785 and Westbrook in 1814, leaving Falmouth the size it is today, approximately 33 square miles.
