Of Simpler Times. Soon to be Lost
To avoid the congestion at the intersection of Rt. 17 and Rt. 1 I take a right turn off of Rt 17 down this small road into Falmouth. In its day, like Fredericksburg, it too was a port but was soon dwarfed by the city. Most of the homes and businesses in this section date back to the early 19th century. Unfortunately, the problems of this century, specifically traffic congestion, will result in the widening and reconfiguring of the Rt. 1 (which can be seen behind and above the white building at the end of the road) and Rt. 17 intersection which will have a significant impact on this area.
