Welcome to Truro:
Located in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, the Town of Truro is about two hours outside of Boston. The town is named after Truro in Cornwall, United Kingdom. It's name among the natives of Cape Cod was Pamet, or Payomet, a name that still refers to an area around the town center known as the Pamet Roads. Truro's year-round population remains under 3,000, but can soar to 15,000 to 20,000 people during summer months as Truro is an ideal vacation spot being just minutes from the tip of Cape Cod and Provincetown.
