Glimpses of Cumberland Township
Along the old Montreal Road, and towards the south, lies the historic township of Cumberland. It has undergone considerable change over the past two centuries: from rugged wilderness, to bustling villages; from industrious farmsteads, to vibrant urban communities.
“Glimpses of Cumberland Township: For the Honour of Our Ancestors” pays tribute to the former township’s XIXth and XXth century history through stories and images, as told and shared by local contributors. It is a true community effort – 200 years in the making – that highlights Bearbrook, Navan, Sarsfield, Vars, Leonard, and Cumberland Village to Orléans, among others.
