Meet Our New Director!
The Truro Historical Society is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Carr as our new Museum Director effective February 28.
Paul has a long service history in non-profit development settings, corporate communications, marketing communications, and publishing. He founded and published a magazine with distribution in central Massachusetts, The Sturbridge Times Magazine, for 14 years until April 2021. His corporate marketing work specialized in medical device equipment, specifically lasers, for cosmetic applications.
Paul’s partner in business and life — husband John Small, a Cape Cod artist, is descended from several outer-Cape families, most notably the Smalls of Truro and Eastham. John’s great(x3) grandfather was the original landowner of the property where Highland Light and our Museum sit and the first lighthouse keeper at Highland Light. Highland House Museum was built in 1907 as a hotel by Isaac Morton Small for Cape Cod visitors. John’s grandfather, Willard Small, was born at Ocean Farm.
Paul brings a new lens to our efforts at the Highland House Museum with a keen interest in program and exhibit development and raising funds to make possible property improvements.
Paul and John have been together 27 years and live on the Cape with their Goldendoodle, Bondi.
