The Highland House has been “put to bed” for another season, but we are still be working hard this winter & spring to honor and preserve the history of Truro and the Outer Cape in preparation for the 2017 season. The Cobb Archive continues to be open twice a week, where research is carried out and gifts are recorded into our collections.
In 2017, we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary, and we hope that you will help us to honor our two founders, Courtney Allen and Edward Wilson, along with all the folks who contributed to the Truro Historical Society’s growth over the years. We will begin the restoration of the Highland House Museum, replacing windows and siding to keep out the wind and weather. As part of our History’s Happening Series, we will honor the locally owned boat and crew of the Patricia Marie that sunk off our coast in 1967, along with other contemporary shipwrecks.
We are especially proud of the progress we have made this year. With your help, our organization has grown in many ways. We have increased our membership, hosted more visitors, held fascinating programs, and presented three outstanding exhibitions. Our excitement is growing and we want to do more!
Won’t you help us by making a special donation this year?
