Truro Real Estate Information

Route 6 and Route 6A bisect the town of Truro, located in Upper Cape. Historically, Truro was the first stop of the Pilgrims in 1620. Ultimately, the pilgrims chose to continue on to what is now Provincetown due to the poor soil in Truro. The town?s name is derived from Truro in Cornwall, England. Surrounded on three sides by the Cape Cod National Seashore, the town is in the midst of beautiful beaches and well-preserved recreational area, making for a soothing and relaxing community environment.

A number of lighthouses that line Truro?s shores add a soft, ambient light to the dusk.
Pamet Harbor, opening up to Cape Cod Bay, is homeport to a number of smaller boats, mostly owned by local residents. Truro?s long distance from other communities and mainland Massachusetts has made it an attractive getaway for many who enjoy the quiet streets that for most of the year is absent of tourists and other temporary residents. One of the most popular annual events for Truro?s residents is The Cape Cod Life Food & Wine Festival. Although it is actually located in Provincetown a few miles north, a number of Truro?s own restaurants are featured at the event. The Lower Cape?s famous oysters, crab, lobster, and scallops are always a favorite and can be enjoyed for low prices due to the fresh catches that come into the town?s port daily from local fishermen.

Although the town has a population that barely exceeds 2,000 people, Truro operates its own school system. However, this only includes the Truro Central School that serves students between kindergarten and sixth grade. The town has a tuition waiver agreement with the Nauset Regional School District to allow its pupils to attend the Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich or the Nauset Regional High School. Due to Truro?s rather remote location in perhaps the narrowest portion of the cape, many students choose to pursue exceptions to attend the often closer schools in Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod.
