Teaticket Inn: Best Cooking on Cape Cod

“Long before there was Falmouth there was Teaticket.  ‘Tataket’ was the name the Wampanoag Tribe gave the area.  It translates roughly and appropriately as ‘at the principal tidal stream.'”  The Book of Falmouth

…and some might say that the Teaticket Inn was the “principal” inn for many traveling gourmands.  Owned by Joseph and Margaret (Pherson) Fish, the Inn was “a favorite stopping place” for travelers and drummers [sales people] who made the Inn their “home,” and who “greatly relish[ed] the good things prepared by ‘Aunty’ Fish as she was affectionately called.” In fact, Mrs. Fish was described in The Enterprise as the “best cook on Cape Cod,” who was “reputed to serve a hearty meal and plenty for seconds or thirds or more.”

    Where was the Teaticket Inn? What is there now?

      We found the answer from a PDF on the Falmouth Museums on the Green website (on page 30!). http://museumsonthegreen.org/…/Hotels-Inns-of-Falmouth… “The Teaticket Inn stood for many years on Route 28 where the Admiralty Motel stands across from the present Stop and Shop complex…in later years, it was operated by Mr. and Mrs. Joesph F. Fish and their son Albert Fish….upon her death, the property was rented for several years until it was destroyed by fire in 1961.

    It is my understanding that it was also owned by my great grandparents for a while too. They were James and Lillie Hazelton.
