About Cumberland Pathways

Millions of Americans trace their family story to the Cumberland Valley. They left clues to their life experiences.  You can find them in the Cumberland Valley’s rich genealogical treasures. More than 250 years of social, cultural, political and military history are protected and preserved here. Our archives house documents that you will find nowhere else. CCHS, USAHEC, and Dickinson College have led the way in the digitization of family records and the creation of oral history archives. Your family’s story will come alive during Cumberland Pathways and you will leave inspired by our expert speakers and workshops.
