Falmouth Preservation Expo 2017
Over a hundred people joined local businesses and non-profits under tents on the grounds of Museums on the Green and inside the Falmouth Historical Society’s Cultural Center for an informal opportunity to meet local specialists whose products and services can help renovate and restore an old or historic home. An exposition representing small Cape Cod businesses were there to answer questions, provide useful information and in some cases offer for sale distinctive accessories, parts or expert services for home improvement projects. We hope that after learning about their exciting products and services, Falmouth residents will seek them out for home renovation or restoration needs. And we rounded out this information exposition with representation of ten local non-profits to entice attendance at their 2017 programs.
