Fort Cumberland

Travelers in the Appalachian region of Maryland, make time to learn about the history of the city of Cumberland near La Vale. The city was developed at the location of Fort Cumberland, a frontier fort built in 1754, during the French and Indian War.

Members of the Maryland militia built the fort at the site where the Potomac River and Wills Creek meet, in what is now downtown Cumberland. Due to the strategic location of the fort, it was established as a rally point for General Braddock's troops.

General Braddock began his unsuccessful expedition against the French, from Fort Cumberland. After Braddock's death, George Washington led the troops back to the fort. The remains of the fort exist below the current Emmanuel Episcopal Church. Visit the church to read the interpretive signs and learn more about this historic fort.
