Cumberland

Cumberland is a community on the Ottawa River in eastern Ontario, Canada within the City of Ottawa. It was part of the Historic Township of Cumberland, and was originally part of Russell County, joining the Region of Ottawa-Carleton in the 1960s. 

The Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, which depicts rural life in a village setting during the 1920s and 1930s, celebrated its 35th anniversary on September 25, 2011. The museum features a General Store, one-room schoolhouse and antique vehicles at the village garage, a tractor-pulled wagon ride, and farm animals. The former Knox Presbyterian/United Church building (1904-1980) and its artefacts were relocated from Vars to the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum.

Highway 174 runs on the north side of Cumberland and you can access Quebec via the Cumberland Ferry which runs year round 24/7.  Annually there are several events hosted at the Maple Hall - breakfast, dinners and fund raisers.  There are several parks, an arena and many trails to walk, hike or cross country ski in the winter.  The Cumberland arena hosts a farmer's market every year from June to September where you will find baked goods, vegetables and a variety of vendors.  

Most homes outside of the Village of Cumberland sit on two acre lots.
