Falmouth is the capital and chief town of Trelawny parish, Jamaica. It is situated on the north coast of the country, close to Montego Bay. Founded in 1769 by Thomas Reid and named after Sir William Trelawny's birthplace in Cornwall, the city flourished as a market centre for 40 years as Jamaica became the leading sugar producer in the world. Falmouth is noted for being one of the best-preserved historic towns in the Caribbean.
Places of interest include Albert George Shopping and Historical Centre, which dates back from 1895, the St Peter's Anglican Church, built in 1795 and the former residence of slave owner John Tharp. Other sights are Martha Brae Rafters' Village where tourists can take a river ride on a 30 foot bamboo raft, and Greenwood Great House - the finest Caribbean antique museum.
During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Falmouth was one of Jamaica's busiest ports. It was a wealthy town with a rich racial mix but its economy was based on slavery. Within the parish, nearly 100 plantations were actively manufacturing rum and sugar for export to Britain. Jamaica had become the leading sugar producer in the world. Starting in 1840, the fortunes of Falmouth as a commercial centre declined after emanciaption of slaves in the British Empire.
