I am very pleased to report that we had a wonderful year at the newly renovated Highland House Museum. In 2018, we had more visitors, more members and more attendees at our events than ever before! Our two special exhibitions, Living Legacy 2018and Mid-Century: The Outer Cape Comes of Age were very well received, and the opening of The Hopper Room brought many visitors who were discovering the museum for the first time.
Some of Our Living Legacies 2018
The work that was completed on the renovation of the Highland House Museum during the past year has vastly improved the look and function of the building, and work on Phase 3, which involves the construction of a climate controlled storage room, has already begun. This addition will allow us to store our collection in a way that will keep it safe from the elements found on the edge of the windy Truro Highlands!
The Cobb Archive, home of our collections on paper, has been active throughout the year. With more volunteers, we’ve been able to make great strides in accessioning and organizing our existing collection as well as gratefully accepting new donations.
Please help us keep up our momentum!We rely on your generosity to keep Truro’s history alive for everyone to learn about and enjoy. Your tax-deductible donation to the Truro Historical Society will bring new research projects, new exhibitions, and new events that will highlight the history of Truro and the Outer Cape.
