Something wonderful about Truro

Multiple rivers run through Truro, which is how many believe the town earned its name. The name Truro is said to come from the Cornish word “Tr-veru,” which means three rivers (another fun fact - there is a city in Cornwall, England also named Truro). Backing up this belief is the fact that the Mi’kmaq refer to Truro as Wagobagitik, which also relates to the area’s river locale. (Note that the Mi’kmaq people have called the area home for several centuries.) Wagobagitik translates to “end of the water’s flow.” Truro is situated on the south side of the Salmon River, near the mouth of the river at the eastern end of Cobequid Bay.
