Cumberland 

Cumberland photo 

 

Located in a river valley in “Mountain Maryland” – the Appalachians in Allegany County – Cumberland is an historic town (27 listings in the National Register of Historic Places) that has evolved into a vibrant arts community.

Cumberland’s Town Centre is comprised of a three-block pedestrian mall with adjacent side streets and offers fine dining, unique shops, stylish living and blossoming artist colony, all housed in significant turn-of-the-century architecture.

Canal Place Heritage Area, at the western end of the C&O Canal, showcases the heritage of this former railroad hub. It also features an enticing mix of retail, galleries and recreation. Boat rides on the canal and excursions aboard an old-time train powered by a steam locomotive are available from Canal Place.

The “Trestle Walk” at Canal Place connects the restored Western Maryland Railway Station – home of the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad and the Allegany County Visitor Center – with the C&O Canal Tow Path, where you can begin an invigorating hike or bike ride.

Cumberland is also both a designated Main Street Maryland community as well as Arts & Entertainment district.
