"Members of the Preservation Maryland team recently had the pleasure of spending a day in the nation’s Gateway to the West. No, not the one in Missouri—the one right here in Maryland that once served as the start of the United States’ first national highway, the western terminus for the C&O Canal, and a hub for railway companies like the B&O Railroad – our very own Cumberland.
There were many takeaways from the visit, such as the unmistakable sense of pride residents have for their city and its heritage or the commitment from community leaders and members to making Cumberland a place people want to live, work, and play. But what stood out the most—and what Cumberland is proving—is how essential preservation is to a successful recipe for revitalization."
