The Old North Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Truro, Massachusetts. The cemetery was established in 1713, and remained the town's only cemetery until 1799. It is located on Aldrich Street near US Route 6. Many individuals associated with Truro's early development are buried here, as are ship's captains. When originally laid out, the cemetery was about 3 acres (1.2 ha) in size; it was expanded in 1926 and again in 1974. The oldest part of the cemetery is its northernmost section, abutting Aldrich Road.
