In 1689, Martin Mathieu, first born in Acadia from French parents, founded Cobequit. Today, known as Truro, it was an agricultural community but its location made the town a major railway centre in the mid-17th century.
Today the town is renowned for its wooden sculptures created from elm trees affected by a disease. The sculptures are on display in the center of Truro.  For this reason, the town of Truro aslo carries the title “Nova Scotia’s Tree Sculpture Capital”.

Victoria Park and its 160 hectares of protected forest, where you will find a brook and two waterfalls, will delight tourists to this Acadian town.
“ Truro has many musical and cultural organizations and its residents enjoy a diverse and vibrant cultural life. Choirs, theater companies, music festivals and orchestras are often featured. Victoria Park, at the heart of the town, is one of the most beautiful natural parks east of Canada. Covering over 1,000 acres of land, the park is rich with magnificent trees including very old hemlocks that grow above a steep ravine and along a running brook with two waterfalls. Whether you are hockey, golf, hiking or cultural fans, Truro has something to offer to you! ”

- Yvette Saulnier, Director of the Centre communautaire francophone de Truro
