About Cumberland

History and culture come together to greet today's trends in the Village of Cumberland. Founded in 1888 by Robert Dunsmuir, Cumberland's heritage includes a vast history of coal mining that continued right through to 1966. Cumberland was the central hub for trade and commerce during the coal mining era, and this brought in people from as far as China, Japan and Europe. The Cumberland Museum is a great place to visit to learn about the wonderful history of this community.
