Falmouth Court House

The Falmouth Court House once served as the epicenter of social, political, and community life. Built around 1816, the building would house town meetings, concerts, events, and the house of legal authority. While it still serves as the court house of Falmouth, , town meetings have been replaced by city councils and administrative offices.


The courthouse resembles the traditional style of government buildings, complete with the long staircase and columns common in courthouses around the world.
