Truro Dyer Family and Pamet Harbor 1848 (Talk will be at the Highland House Museum): Drawing on original family records, Carlotta Dyer Zilliax and Tim Richards will tell the story of Pamet Harbor and the people who built one of the country’s leading maritime centers here in Truro. Members of the Dyer family played a central role in the Pamet Harbor story, as captains, schooner owners, fishermen, and businessmen. Through the experiences of the Dyer seamen and their wives, the talk will add depth to a new museum exhibit featuring a model of the harbor in that era. At that time, the harbor was home to 45 fishing schooners, two shipyards, and dozens of other maritime businesses.
