Nimrod Building Sold: How Should it be Developed?
Let’s give the new owner some community input: How would you like to see the 11,000-square-foot, 1.2-acre Nimrod building redeveloped? What businesses or other tenants would be the best fit for the space and location? Tell us in the comments.
After nonprofit efforts to raise $700,000 to save it failed, the Nimrod building on Dillingham Avenue was sold this week for $675,000 to North Falmouth developer Warren Dalton.
The foreclosed structure that formerly housed the now-defunct Nimrod restaurant is famous for the cannonball which lodged in its wall during the British warship Nimrod’s attack on Falmouth January 28, 1814. The building later was moved to Dillingham Avenue.
The former Nimrod Restaurant which derived its name from the British vessel, HMS Nimrod, which fired on Falmouth during the War of 1812 is to undergo renovation.

Our mission is to preserve the historic Nimrod buildings (on Dillingham Avenue), the cannon-ball scarred Ichabod Hatch house and the Capt. Nathaniel Lewis house, as a reminder of the town’s courageous resistance to the British in the War of 1812 and to adaptively reuse them in a way that will benefit Falmouth and its economy.
