Over the last fifty years, the Truro Historical Society has been the recipient of many gifts from individuals and families with a relationship to Truro. Our collections continue to grow as more heirlooms are donated to us every year. The Highland House, our seasonal museum, holds many of our collections include those about Shipwrecks, Farming, Period Furniture, Folk Art and Textiles.
The Cobb Archive houses our collection of rare or historic books, records, manuscripts, maps, and post cards. Family memorabilia, photographs and other historical documents are accessible to the public for viewing and research, as well. Reproduction maps are available for purchase by contacting: [email protected].
The Cobb Archive collection of rare and historic post cards has been digitized by the Boston Public Library’s Digital Commonwealth project and is now available for consultation online at https://www.digitalcommonwealth.org/search?utf8=✓&search_field=all_fields&q=truro
