If you would like to help save the landmarks of Falmouth please contact us at Info@SaveTheNimrod.Org or 508.566.5830
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.
We are now launched into the more encompassing phase of saving the historic character of Falmouth.
