The Cumberland Museum hosts several annual events to celebrate the fascinating history of the Village including Lunar New Year, Worker's Day Bean Supper, Miners Memorial Day, Women's History Month events, Foggy Mountain Fall Fair and more.
Cumberland was built on the blood, sweat and tears of coal miners and the labour history of the Village includes notable figures including Ginger Goodwin and Joe Naylor.
The men and women of early Cumberland fought to earn a basic living and for basic human rights and many paid for that fight with their lives. The Cumberland Museum is a tribute to the working men and women who built our community.
