We enjoyed a brief visit here. We could only look in the windows but there was an audio that gave the history of the place.

Some details to read and a couple of narrated things. I understand that sometimes they open up the cabin but we weren't there at the right time and there were no posted hours.

We found this during our morning walk around Cumberland. There is an audio that you can play anytime which explains about the cabin and how it was used during history. It was extremely interesting. It is part of a historical walk through Cumberland.

Anyone planning a visit should make sure that it is open and a tour guide is present. Usually, it's best to try to come during Cumberland's Heritage days festival. The tour guide will tell you a lot of interesting information that most people never knew about our founding father and first President. It is also located across Wills Creek from... More

Located on a well signed (historical waysides) history trail, this site is very important for any true history buff. George Washington's military career both started and ended here, and if you're a Washington fan and/or just a serious history fan, perhaps chills will also run up your spine, as they did mine, while standing on the porch and looking in...

This place is a perfect spot to learn about Cumberland's history and the Revolutionary War!!! I remember every year during Heritage Days me and my parents would stop by and hear what the recording would say or a tour guide, it just depends on the hours. I recommend this place for anyone who is a history lover.

There is not much to this little house. It is what we would call today a one room efficiency. Unfortunatly it is only opne for reservations and special occassions. However, it makes you appreciate the hard life George Washington had to live during his military years. Plus while he was President he also used it when he came to Cumberland... More
