One of the highlights of a visit to Cumberland is a stroll through the Victorian Historic District along Washington Street on the western side of town. This area includes the site of the original Fort Cumberland (now the Emmanuel Episcopal Church) and more than 50 residential and public buildings built in the 1800s, when Cumberland was at its peak. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Washington showcases homes with stained-glass windows, cupolas, and mansard roofs. You'll see architectural styles ranging from Federal, Queen Anne, Empire, Colonial Revival, Italianate, and English Country Gothic to Georgian Revival, Gothic Revival, and Greek Revival. A self-guided walking tour available from the visitor center offers a glimpse into their history. Two homes are open for tours.
