The Poor House and Methodist Cemetery (also known as the "Falmouth Work House" or "Poor Farm" or "Town Infirmary" or "Falmouth Artist Colony") is an historic poor house and cemetery on 744 Main Street in Falmouth, Massachusetts.

The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1]

The building is owned by the Town of Falmouth, and is called the Edward Marks Jr Building. It houses the Falmouth Retirement System[2] and the Falmouth Historical Commission. The building used to be the home of the Falmouth Artists Guild[3] prior to the construction of the Falmouth Art Center.

A list of those interred in the cemetery and photographs of many of the monuments is maintained by Find A Grave [4]
