Part of the Changing Landscapes, Shifting Tides: The Story of Falmouth Event Series


Exploring the interactions between humans and the landscape over Falmouth’s 300 year history.


6:30pm, Falmouth By The Sea, 191 Foreside Road

Free, open seating.


Join Dr. Richard Judd, Professor of History at UMaine, who will explore the topic of coastal tourism in Maine. Falmouth, like many of Maine’s coastal communities, developed a reputation as an unspoiled scenic playground well-suited for vacationing.  The advent of the motor car, trolley, and rail system, coupled with an increase in leisure time resulted in a dramatic change to Falmouth’s Foreside community, the consequences of which still impact the town today. 


Changing Landscapes, Shifting Tides: The Story of Falmouth Event Series is presented by Stantec and partially funded by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.  This is a Falmouth Tercentennial Celebration event.
