Canal Place Heritage Area

Canal Place Heritage Area

Canal Place, Maryland's first certified Heritage Area, is located at the historic western terminus of the C&O Canal in Cumberland. Canal Place's ongoing mission is to honor and preserve local heritage and the C&O Canal and bring history to life for visitors and residents alike. Visitors can ride a steam train, hike or bike the towpath, tour a full-scale Canal Boat replica, learn about canal history at the C&O Canal National Historic Park's Cumberland Visitor Center, and enjoy unique festivals. 


Maryland’s Heritage Areas are locally designated and State certified regions where public and private partners make commitments to preserving historical, cultural and natural resources for sustainable economic development through heritage tourism.
