Welcome To Falmouth Jamaica
By Wellesley Gayle
It's a town with a fascinating history!
Outside of having the distinction of having the most buildings with Georgian architecture in Jamaica, it was considered, in the late 18th (early 19th century), to be the wealthiest New World port south of Charleston in South Carolina!
It was the hub for exports of rum and sugar for close to 100 properties!

It had several merchant stores and some of the best craftsmen were here, including goldsmiths, tinsmiths and gunsmiths.
There were hotels, carriage-makers, taverns, brothels and as much as three (3) local newspapers at one point; the Cornwall Courier, The Falmouth Gazette and The Falmouth Post!
So yes, some of the wealthiest in Jamaica resided here!
After emancipation though, much changed and the town went into decline.
That decline, many argued, continued for many years, but in 2011, perhaps in an attempt to regain its glory state, the government built the hip Falmouth Cruise Ship Port, capturing semblances of its former glory!

Today, there are several attractions, adventures and exciting things to do in an around Falmouth.
