Facts for Renters
Cumberland has a historic downtown area, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places years ago. Since then, the town was able to keep its quaint appearance and close-knit, small-town feel.
Cumberland was officially established in 1831.
Cumberland was named after Cumberland, Maryland, which was at the end of the National Historic Road. Cumberland itself is on this road, and soon became a pit stop for travelers going through.
Because of this pathway, the town developed quickly, building several mills, a blacksmith shop, a railway station, a schoolhouse and three churches.
The town recently redid its logo to include an image of the pathway, which nods at the history behind the town.
Cumberland has four different parks that residents and visitors can explore and enjoy.
