Celebrating Cumberland’s History

The Cumberland and District Historical Society (Cumberland Museum & Archives) was founded in 1981. Located on the corner of First Street and historic Dunsmuir Avenue, the artefacts and archives within the building relate to the rich history of the Village of Cumberland, BC, which was established as a coal mining camp in 1888.

One of the longest-running non-profits in the Village, incorporated in 1981, but operating before this in the former printing office of the Cumberland Islander office at 2757 Dunsmuir office since 1969.

It is with gratitude we thank the founding members of our organization for their work that set the stage for the years of community engagement that followed and continues to this day.
