Falmouth is a member of Hants County, located on the western shores of the scenic Avon River. Acadian settlers arrived in Falmouth in the 1700s, as the town name honours Admiral Boscawan, the First Viscount Falmouth. In 1761, the land of Falmouth was granted to a large group of settlers, with whom the town was erected. Falmouth would lose a school to fire in 1895, a bridge to fire in 1892 and demolish a century old church in 1905. Falmouth's main industry is agriculture. Halifax is just 67.4 km (41.9 mi.) south of Falmouth, following Highway 101.
