Very nice to visit. Great for taking interior and exterior pictures. Good access from Washington Street on the side of church. Great view of downtown Cumberland. Decorated beautiful at Christmas time.

A beautiful place of worship. Lots of history and sits at the foot of historic Washington Street. Built on the site of Fort Cumberland and the tunnels below the church remain. Tours are available. Call the church for details. Amazing stained glass windows!

Was given a tour of the chapel and tunnels. Beautiful Tiffany windows. The information about the fort and underground railroad were interesting but a lot of information to remember it all.
