Falmouth is a town in Cumberland County, incorporated on November 12, 1718 as an area now known as ancient Falmouth.
Falmouth is a rapidly growing suburban community, having added over 35 percent to its population between 1990 and 2000.
The town hosts two nature preserves. Gilsland Farm, the headquarters of the Maine Audubon Society, includes 2-1/2 miles of trails through this 60-acre sanctuary of fields, woods, and marsh bordering the Presumpscot River. The Mill Creek Preserve features trails, salt marshes and uplands along Mill Creek. Northwest of Route 88, it is managed by the Nature Conservancy and the town of Falmouth.
Mackworth Island Public Reserved Land is an island of approximately 100 acres, connected to the mainland by a causeway at the mouth of the Presumpscot River. The 1 ¼ mile trail that encircles the island takes about an hour to complete at a leisurely pace, with stunning views of Casco Bay and Portland. In 1946, Governor Percival Baxter donated the Island to the State to be used for public purposes and as a sanctuary for wild beasts and birds.
