is a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, United States,
comprising two villages: Truro and North Truro. Located slightly more than 100
miles (160 km) by road from Boston, it is a summer vacation community just
south of the northern tip of Cape Cod, in an area known as the "Outer
Cape". English colonists named it after Truro in Cornwall, United Kingdom.
The historic Wampanoag Native American people called the area Pamet or Payomet. Their language was part of the large Algonquian family.
