Upcoming Open House Dates
Now that Linn county is in stage 2 of reopening we can host open house events again! There will be a few changes though.
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 email@example.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.
