Do women run everything in Cumberland?
Well, maybe not everything. Life in a coal town like Cumberland was not easy for the women who settled here. Dangerous mining conditions meant that many were left widowed or without breadwinners to care for the family.
The best way to survive was to take control. Join community guide, Marianne Bell, on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 2 p.m. on a guided walking tour in celebration of Women’s History Month.
Hear stories of the ordinary women who lived extraordinary lives making Cumberland their home.
