Cumberland Cemetery Guided Walk

Come and learn about the ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

Join us for a 90-minute guided walk at the Cumberland Cemetery, a final resting place for labour activists, miners, and everyday individuals.

Established in 1895, the Cumberland Cemetery continues to stand as an enduring symbol of strength and perseverance. Through the intertwined narratives of these lived experiences, we gain insight into the tribulations and obstacles faced by the inhabitants of an early mining community. 

The Cumberland Museum & Archives is entrusted with preserving the memory of the people who helped shape Cumberland into what it is today. As a non-profit entity, your contribution will contribute to the preservation of these narratives, ensuring they endure and be shared for generations to come.

Please note:

The cemetery grounds are uneven, and the path will become dark after dusk; please wear comfortable walking shoes and feel free to bring a flashlight. Electric candles will be provided. This tour will be facilitated rain or shine, so please dress for the weather.

If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding this tour, please contact Rosslyn Shipp at director@cumberlandmuseum.ca
