The North Truro Airforce Station (now the Highlands Center) is located off of Route 6 at the Highland Light Exit in North Truro, Mass. Turn right off the exit onto Highland Road and continue on for about 0.6 miles before turning left onto Old Dewline Road. You’ll find the entrance at the end of the road.
