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 to the windows, of this very small one room cabin that at one time early in his career, Washington called home!

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 during the Whiskey Rebellion.

They were working around the HQ. building when we visited, and it was closed. But if we return to Cumberland, Maryland we will stop by to see it when the work is completed.

It did look very small.
