Additional Details:
"Widow's Walks" date from the old Cape Cod sailing vessel days when the wives of sea-faring men watched for their loved ones return. Sometimes a husband, whose ship was lost at sea, would never return, but the widow continued to watch faithfully for that phantom Ship that never came. There are only a few "Widow's Walks" left on Cape Cod. This one is located in Falmouth.
