Beebe Woods consists of 383 acres of land given to the Town of Falmouth by Mr. and Mrs. Josiah K. Lilly, III in 1966. Although the Woods show no evidence of colonial dwellings, we can tell by the relative youth of the trees and by the stone walls, that it provided lumber, firewood and pasture land to Native Americans and early colonists.
The Woods are a part of larger holdings acquired in the 1870's by James Beebe, who owned a Boston dry goods business that later became Jordan Marsh. He was one of the earliest of Falmouth's summer residents. After the death of the last Beebe son, the land passed through several owners, and in 1966 was slated for a 500 home development when J. K. Lilly purchased it for future conservation.
Beebe Woods hosts an extensive network of walking trails that cover miles of varied terrain, exploring wooded ridges and steep-sided hollows, and encircle the picturesque pond know as the "Punch Bowl" that lies deep within the Woods. The trails also connect at the southern end of Beebe Woods to Peterson Farm (See next property description
