Truro was settled in 1761, and named after a city of the same name in Cornwall, England. Truro's first descendants came from New England, and were mostly of Ulster Scottish origin. Truro started out as a small farming community until the Nova Scotia Railway was constructed in 1858, which expanded from Halifax to Pictou. As a result, Truro was given the resources to flourish, becoming incorporated in 1875.

Today, Truro is known as the home of one of Canada's last textile plants, which makes t-shirts, socks and undergarments. Dubbed by locals as 'Hubtown,' Truro is a central location for transit, via both highways and railroads.

The Salmon River, in Truro's northern boundary, is known for its tidal bores, extremely rare tidal waves that travel opposite the tide. Truro is also the tree sculpture capital of Nova Scotia. Truro holds many local cultural events, such as the annual bike race. Four sections of the Berlin Wall are visited daily in a vacant lot on Prince Street. Truro offers beaches, trails, city parks and the Marigold Cultural Centre, which is always fully booked with concerts and other events.

Truro accommodations include many bed and breakfasts, hotels, inns and more.
