Inscription.  This is an American Revolution bicentennial project to permanently record the history of one of the City of Cumberland's most historic sites, Fort Cumberland. The beautiful interpretive plaques tell the story and the attractive white rocks mark the boundaries of the fort according to Will Lowdermilk's "History of Cumberland." While persons learn, they will also enjoy walking in the wonderful outdoors of Cumberland.
This was truly a cooperative project for the entire area and credit for accomplishment should be extended to the City of Cumberland; Allegany County; the City, County, and State Bicentennial Commissions; the State Economic and Community Development Commission; Emmanuel Episcopal Church; First Church of Christ Scientist; Masonic Temple; and the many, many individuals who gave of their time, efforts, and work.
