Students Document Cumberland Historic Sites

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — Photography students at Allegany College of Maryland are documenting historic buildings in Cumberland with help from the Maryland Historical Trust.

The state agency has awarded the city a $7,200 grant to create a photographic record of historic assets. City officials say students in a digital photography class at the college are working this month on the project.

They’re photographing buildings in the downtown Canal Place Preservation District and the West Side.

Canal Place is a tourism development near the western end of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park.

The West Side includes the Greene Street Historic District, with buildings dating to the 1820s.
