Cumberland Things to Do: 14 reviews and 33 photos
At the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad station is a small museum of the C&O Canal, with an information center. This is a good start place for learning about the canal. From here, you can visit the re-created canal boat that is on display nearby. Beyond that, if you have time, take a hike along the Potomac River, which flows south of here. Also, across the river from the station is a small log cabin. During the French and Indian War, in 1754-55, a young aide to British General Braddock set up his temporary headquarters here. His name was George Washington.
Address: 13 Canal St, Cumberland, MD 21502
Directions: From I-68, take the downtown exit (43C), and follow the signs.
