Falmouth at Home … at the Beach!

Falmouth at Home is a collection of photographs taken by the Falmouth community that documents how we spend our days while we are staying close to home. Every few weeks we add a new category of photographs. Today we are expanding our footprint a bit by asking for photographs taken at a Falmouth beach. We are so excited about this, we even made a video at the beach!

We welcome Falmouth residents to submit photos via email to fpldigital@falmouthpubliclibrary.org and make your subject “FALMOUTH AT HOME AT THE BEACH”.

Please provide a title and let us know if we may use your name.  Be sure to provide a description about your photo, too! We would love to know which Falmouth beach you were at when you took the photo.

Looking for some historic images of Falmouth beaches? We’ve got two incredible collections of Falmouth postcards, that include LOTS of beach views! You’ll also get to see plenty of classic cars!

Head to our digital archive of the Falmouth ENTERPRISE, and find out all kinds of historic news about our beaches. For example:

“The members of Camp Tautog were entertained last Saturday by Dr. Chas. Miller and family at Old Silver Beach. After a two hours display of fireworks, refreshments of ice cream were served by the ladies. A voting contest was then held to decide on the most popular man in the camp, and Mr. J. Edmunds won.” July 21, 1906, ENTERPRISE

And for some other beach resources, keep an eye on the Falmouth Beach Department updates, and the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce beach page.

So send us your Falmouth beach photograph, and your story about your time on the beach! Be part of Falmouth history.
