Founded by Thomas Reid in 1769, Falmouth flourished as a market center and port for fort years, at a time when Jamaica was the world's leading sugar producer.

The town was meticulously planned from the start, with wide streets in a regular grid, adequate water supply, and public buildings. Falmouth actually had piped water, before New York City.
