Grand Re-opening to be Held for Renovated Falmouth Station

FALMOUTH – A grand re-opening celebration will be held next Thursday for the renovated Falmouth Station on Depot Avenue.

The Falmouth Economic Development & Industrial Corporation has restored the former railroad station to its 1912 appearance and has repurposed it to be the town’s transit center.

The re-opening ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m. on July 27.

The EDIC acquired a 99-year lease from the MassDOT in conjunction with a grant to renovate the station.

The station, which was originally named the Falmouth Railroad Station, began service in 1872 when the Old Colony Railroad inaugurated service on the Woods Hole Branch.

The original station was sold in 1912 to the Swift family, who moved the wood depot across the tracks.

The New Haven Railroad built a replacement brick depot which has remained through today.

Rail service at the facility halted in 1989. Since that time the building was renamed the Falmouth Station and has been used by the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority and Peter Pan Bus Lines as a bus depot.

Future improvements planned for the station include a café and historic rail cars.

The majority of the rail lines once used to carry trains to the station has been converted into the Shining Sea Bikeway which extends from Woods Hole to North Falmouth.
