Living history — all within six blocks.
Downtown Cumberland Maryland’s historic district will give you the chance to go back in time and make a fun weekend getaway. George Washington really DID sleep here and his headquarters are located on a plot of land beside a monument honoring Cumberland’s starting point of the National Road. Nearby Canal Place celebrates the heritage and history of the western end of C&O Canal with barge replicas and scenic walkways. A short walk up historic Washington Street gives spectacular views of the city’s church steeples and stately homes with breath-taking period architecture. And don’t miss the artistic detail of the Cumberland City Hall rotunda.
Centuries of history are covered in just a short walking tour. Time travel was never so easy.
