Current News:

You may think the building has been abandoned, but we are making progress. This diamond in the rough IS getting some attention to restore it to its original condition.


Temporary electricity is connected. The roof and siding have been evaluated for next steps. We have bids for a new roof and paint. Can't wait to see some transformation!

Will you help this historic building to be a lovely addition to the neighborhood again? The only thing slowing down changes is the money to pay for them.  (Click that Donate button!)

Gary Goby cares. He cares about our past, our present and our future. He cares about people and history and Albany. He points out that nothing lasts without a strong foundation; buildings don’t stand firm and people don’t survive life’s challenges. Last year Gary Goby donated a significant amount of money to ensure the Cumberland Community Events Center would have a strong foundation to support it for many years to come!
