Guided Village Walking Tour:
A lively and engaging tour filled with facts, rumours, tragedies and tales from Cumberland’s colourful history. From the great fires and the great strikes, to lavish garden parties, war time injustices and small pox isolation houses, the Village Walking Tour gives a lively glimpse into the unique history and folklore of the Village. Leaves from the Cumberland Museum and Archives. Allow for 1.5 hours.
Old Townsites Guided Walking Tour:
The Old Townsites Tour features Cumberland’s unique cultural histories. Jumbo’s cabin may be all that is left standing from Cumberland’s once-bustling Chinatown, but the Old Townsites Walking Tour brings the old Chinese and Japanese settlements to life while walking through the majestic forests on the edge of town.
