Welcome to the Postcards from Falmouth oral history collection!
This is a set of oral histories inspired by the Library's extensive collection of historical postcards of Falmouth. By inviting local oral historians to share their stories and recollections of the landmarks and locations depicted on the cards, our goal is to preserve and celebrate our town's history.
Watch the videos, read the transcripts, and explore the community resources we've gathered on each exhibit page. Feel free to click on the postcards and add your recollections in the comment area, too.
Want to see highlights from the collection? Follow the Library on Facebook and Instagram (@postcardsfromfalmouth).
Postcards from Falmouth is a local history project made possible by a Library Services Technology Act grant administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
