If Cape Cod is compared to the shape of your arm then Truro is known as the “wrist”.  Located on the Outer Cape, Truro was the first source of fresh water for the Pilgrims upon their landing in Provincetown  in November 1620.

Mayflower In 1709, Truro was incorporated by descendants of the same Pilgrims that arrived there in 1620.   Many years later in 1960, the creation of the National Seashore served to preserve over 65% of the land in Truro, allowing for the views and the landscapes enjoyed by the Pilgrims to be enjoyed by generations to come.  One of the views was of the Corn Hill area of Truro.  This was the area in which the pilgrims came upon a “cache of maize”1 or a large amount of corn which they could eat.
