“With the completion of Camp Edwards in 1941, Cape Cod’s small, quiet towns and villages were thrust head first into the war effort.  While the war affected each and every corner of America, the Cape was particularly transformed and would never again return to its sleepy pre-war existence. Falmouth’s streets populated with soldiers, its beaches dotted by amphibious craft, and its post office filled with mail from the local boys who served.  Through a patchwork of posters, clothing, ephemera, artifacts, and oral histories from local Falmouth residents, this exhibition brings to life the town as it was in the early 1940s, in the midst of some of the most transformative years  of the 20th century.” – Falmouth Historical Society

The Village Green, Falmouth, Cape Cod, MA

Since 1978 the Cape Cod Marathon, a Falmouth Track Club event, draws runners from around the United States and the world. The Palmer House is located just a few steps from the start and finish lines – a wonderful location for race participants or spectators.

“The Cape Cod Marathon takes its participants on a twenty-six mile loop around the town, beginning in the historic Falmouth Village Green, past the picturesque Falmouth Inner Harbor, along the breathtaking Nantucket Sound vistas of Falmouth Heights and Menauhant, across Green Pond and through the rustic wooded areas of Davisville and past Falmouth’s legendary Cranberry bogs in Hatchville. The race then turns west towards the Buzzards Bay villages of West Falmouth and Sippiwissett and south through the internationally famous scientific community of Woods Hole.

Winding through Woods Hole, the race then returns to the beaches of the Sound with a stunning turnaround, past the lighthouse and along the beaches of Surf Drive and then finally back through the downtown streets of Falmouth to finish at the Village Green. The marathon’s route gives participants a unique view of almost every section of Falmouth and its neighborhoods and people.” – Cape Cod Marathon

Registration opens February 18, 2013. The Cape Cod Marathon Course is a Boston Qualifier and is USATF Certified (MA11020JK) and Sanctioned
