Town Map and Directory

— Cumberland - The Place To Visit, The Place To Live —

Downtown
The Downtown Cumberland Mall is the main shopping and dining district for the city. The brick street is lined with large multi-story commercial buildings, which were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These buildings now contain tourist-oriented businesses such as sidewalk cafes, antique stores, boutiques and art galleries. The downtown mall hosts some of the city's biggest sidewalk festivals and block parties.

Cumberland Valley
Cumberland is known as "The Gateway to the West". It is a scenic valley adorned by numerous church steeples and mountains, which provide a beautiful backdrop to a plethora of architectural styles. The city is the starting point for the National Road, as well as the terminus of the C&O Canal and the beginning of the Great Allegheny Passage.

George Washington's Headquarters
This log cabin, believed to be the only remaining structure from the original Fort Cumberland, was used by then-colonel George Washington as his official headquarters during the French and Indian War. The one-room cabin is not open to the public but has a window with an audio description.
