Curious about Cumberland’s past?

The Cumberland Museum and Archives presents two engaging walking tours taking place in August, bringing the fascinating history of the Village of Cumberland to life.

On Friday, Aug.  15, 20-year resident and museum community member Meaghan Cursons hosts a lively and engaging tour filled with facts, rumours, tragedies and tales from Cumberland’s colourful history.

From the great fires and the great strikes, to lavish garden parties, war time injustices and small pox isolation houses, the Village Walking Tour gives a lively glimpse into the unique history and folklore of the Village.

On Saturday, Aug. 23, join tour guides Dawn Copeman and Val Poborsa for The Old Townsites Tour, featuring Cumberland’s unique cultural histories.

Visit the early settlement locations including the town of Union, and the Chinatown and Japanese town settlements located in the majestic forests of Cumberland.

Both tours leave the Cumberland Museum and Archives at 10:30 a.m.
