Communities Truro

Truro is a peaceful haven, one of the least populated and developed regions of the Cape. The unspoiled beauty and solitude of Truro draws artists, writers and visitors alike.

Once called “Dangerfield” for its treacherous coastline, the town was incorporated in 1709 and named after Truro in Cornwall, England. Back roads wind through fascinating scenery dominated by long rolling hills known as “hogsbacks.” 

The Cape Cod National Seashore stretches along Truro’s eastern shoreline. Visit Cape Cod Light, which has been flashing its beacon since the age of sail. 

In addition to the natural beauty and beaches of Truro, the arts flourish here; visit Truro Arts Center, Payomet Performing Arts Center (plays, music, comedy and films).

You can also enjoy a tour of Truro Vineyards and taste their wine !
