Person Starting at:

Our Historic Falmouth Sightseeing Tour will take us on a brief highlight tour of Falmouth. Founded by Thomas Reid in 1769, Falmouth flourished as a market center and port for forty years at a time when Jamaica was the world’s leading sugar producer. It was named after Falmouth, Cornwall in England and the birthplace of Sir William Trelawny the Governor of Jamaica who was instrumental in its establishment.

The town was meticulously planned from the start, with wide streets in a regular grid, adequate water supply, and public buildings. It even had piped water before New York City. Stop at St. Peters Anglican Church built in 1795. See the Falmouth All-Age School, which is housed in a former army barracks, Fort Balcarres. Stop at the Old Court House. See the William Knibb Memorial High School, the alma mater of Olympian Usain Bolt, residential communities, and Greenfield Stadium.

Additional stops may include the Martha Brae River Rafting and the Rose Hall Great House.
