Cumberland Community

Events Center

Community centers provide a space to gather together, create memories, and celebrate life. 

 

Join us as we work to save the Cumberland Church building and transform it into a community event center.

Happy New Year!

In lieu of our traditional live holiday concert the South Albany Ascend Choir has provided the following links to holiday for you to enjoy!

Thank you for the beautiful music!

We would like to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season. 

 

2020 has been challenging for all of us and we appreciate your continued support. 

 

As the year comes to a close we would like to celebrate a few major developments with you.

  • In November we received a $10k grant from the Kinsman Foundation to assist in the restoration of the Cumberland 

  • The Albany Landmarks Commission awarded the Cumberland a 2020 Preservation Award

  • The Cumberland Community Events  Center was able to purchase land from the city of Albany to relocate the Cumberland Church to 520 S.E. Pine Street.

Reserve Your Spot to Visit the Cumberland

 

Beginning June 14, Cumberland Community Events Center volunteers will hold Sunday open houses for small groups at the building, 401 Main St. S.E., through August.

 

Participants will be able to tour the former church, built in 1892, learn about plans to relocate and renovate the building to create a community events center and view the latest architectural design drawings. Volunteers will be available to answer any questions and solicit input from the community.

 

In order to maintain Covid-19 guidelines for groups, visitors are asked to reserve a spot by 3 p.m. Thursday prior to each event by contacting the Albany Visitors Association, 541-928-0911, or email info@albanyvisitors.com. Physical distancing will be observed and visitors are asked to wear face masks.

 

The Cumberland Presbyterian Church is one of only four pre-WWII wooden churches left in Albany and is the city’s only Queen Anne Style church. The other three are Gothic Revival.

 

The city of Albany owns the building and in September of 2019 the City Council agreed to work with the Cumberland board of directors to help save the structure and allow it to be moved to a nearby location, where it would become a community events center.
