Three wonderful Falmouth Village venues have teamed up to create one great series of evening events on Mondays this summer. The series will begin on Monday, July 7th and will conclude on August 18th.
3 Great Summer Monday Events
The first location is “Falmouth Museums on the Green“. They will be open late from 5:00 to 7:00 pm – a perfect time to step out for a little historic town culture. The Falmouth Historic Society is the overseer of the Museums. The society was established in 1900 and its mission is to preserve and present the town’s history and share that history with the public. The museum buildings are located across from the Falmouth Village Green at 55-65 Palmer Avenue and a few steps from the Palmer House.
The buildings on the Museums’ campus include two historic homes, the Conant House that was built in 1730 and the (Dr. Joseph) Wicks House that was built in 1790. The Wicks House is a hansom example of Federalist Period architecture. There are also lovely colonial style flower gardens and a kitchen herb garden. The third building on the campus is the Visitor Center or the rustic Hallett Barn and the adjacent Cultural Center. The barn has a charming gift shop and it is where tours begin. Tour guides will be present to direct visitors around the to the buildings. The two major exhibits this summer are “Victorian Life in Falmouth” and “Expressions in Stitches – Then and Now”. Admission is free.
The second Summer Monday evening event will be “Hyannis Sound” at the First Congregational Church at 68 Palmer Avenue. The shows begin at 7:00 pm.”Hyannis Sound” consists of ten young men with the voices of angels who sing popular music, a cappella. As one might imagine the music is filled with the youthful energy and the harmony is wonderful. Their choice of music spans the decades. “Hyannis Sound” is a semi-professional singing group the men come from around the United States and convene each summer on Cape Cod. Their signature preppy look, of pastel shirts and ties with khakis, is created with the help of “Vineyard Vines” a local clothing store. Tickets are sold at the door and are $5.00 for children and $12.00 for adults.
The third, and arguably the tastiest Summer event, is at Saint Barnabas Church’s “Lobster on the Lawn”. The brown bag dinner begins at 5:00 pm. The meal consists of a lobster roll, chips and your choice of beverage. For desert, a slice of pie. The price is $15.00 and there is also an appropriately priced child’s meal. The proceeds go to their food pantry to feed the homeless.
After enjoying all 3 great summer Monday events, stroll down Falmouth Village’s charming Main Street to shop in unique shops or have a relaxing night-cap at one of our fine eateries on Main Street’s Restaurant Row. Many of the restaurants have sidewalk dining under the stars.
To conclude your evening, walk back to the Palmer House Inn where you can relax on the veranda rocking chairs while sipping a cool beverage before retiring to your bed chamber where your bed has been turned down and delightful Cape Cod chocolates await.
While all of the bedchambers at the Palmer House have their own charm suitable for relaxation after the most wonderful day of adventures, we recommend the Harriet Beecher Stowe room, the Theodore Roosevelt room or the Emily Dickinson room. These rooms feature comfortable king beds, fireplaces, jacuzzi-style tubs for a relaxing stay before and after your day.
