Building an affordable and inclusive community

Falmouth is looking to transform the properties at #67 and #81 Davisville Road to include a new affordable housing development and the town's first ever all-inclusive, multi-generational play space, while preserving the existing historic Emerald House and community gardens. The proposed Emerald Properties Project is intended to bring these multiple uses together in a cohesive way while respecting the character of the existing neighborhood. 

Connecting Outdoors

Preserving & Reinventing Emerald Properties

The site at #67 Davisville Rd, otherwise known as the “Emerald House Property”, is 4.92 acres, and is home to the historic Emerald House. Acquired in 1995 for public recreation and conservation, this property can only be used for those purposes. Any other purpose would require Town Meeting and State Legislature approvals. Meanwhile, #81 Davisville Rd, otherwise known as the “Rapoza Property”, is 3.92 acres, and is currently undeveloped. This property, acquired in 2007 for public recreation and municipal purposes would allow for a range of uses.  

Public Benefits

Happy Children


Providing opportunities for residents and visitors of all ages and abilities to enjoy the outdoors in a well-designed and accessible environment is a key part of the project.
