Cumberland

We have been exploring neighboring towns and came across this cool little ghost town of a city called Cumberland. It used to be a coal miner type of town and you can still feel the presence of the that time period when you look around. They haven't changed much which makes it even more special as they are really preserving the past.
This town had some many churches in such a small section that it was just too cool not totake a picture of every single one.


The town sits on rolling hills and you can see all the different church tops. For some reason I thought I took a panorama picture but cannot locate it. The boys are bugging me to take them back so they can go on the train which takes you through the scenic mountains. The conductor dresses and looks like he is still back in the 1800's.



I just loved all the Victorian style homes. They just looked so Gothic and dark.


The buildings are just amazing and this poor building in the bottom photo will be coming down pretty soon.



In the middle of the town is a little section where their is a diner, some really cool vintage stores, bakeries and candy stores. Unfortunately we went on a Sunday and most were closed.



I can't wait to go again and see more of this quaint little town. I hear it's really full of tourists and activities during the summer as most towns in this area are dead do the winter that is coming soon.
