A gift to the town — or more specifically to the Salt Pond Area Bird Sanctuaries — by Cornelia L. Carey in the early 1970s, The Knob is still something of a hidden gem along Falmouth’s nearly 70 miles of coastline. The Knob was once part of the 16-acre property purchased by Carey’s family in 1877, on which sat the Quissett Harbor House, a popular resort for nearly a century that closed in 1975, two years after Carey’s death. Some of the former resort buildings still occupy a prominent spot near the start of The Knob walking trail, though they are now owned by the Quissett Harbor House Land Trust.
