Cape Cod Where is Suckanesset?

Why, where the Town of Falmouth is! For Suckanesset was the Indian name for the territory when Bartholomew Gosnold visited it in 1602, eighteen years before the landing of the Pilgrims.

Falmouth has a proud history of its own, and bears the name of old Falmouth of England, which likewise is famous in its own right. Indeed, Falmouth on Cape Cod is so named because tradition, if not history, has it that Gosnold sailed from old Falmouth.

In earlier times, as the town developed, it was prosperous because of its shipbuilding, fishing, whaling, and the manufacture of candles, salt and glass.

The passing of time and changing methods of shipbuilding and whaling in particular brought some of Falmouth’s earlier industries to extinction. But time and tide seem only to have made Falmouth more delightful to thousands of persons, especially admirers and vacationists who resort to this famed Cape Cod town from every state in the Union.

Here they find rest and relaxation, invigorating sea breezes along splendid white beaches, and a summer long wholesome climate.
