A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Council open to Cumberland request

Written December 2nd, 2023 by Hasso Hering

With the exterior restored and a new coat of paint, the former Cumberland Church looked good when I passed it on a bike ride last month. Now the organizers of the Cumberland Community Events Center hope the Albany City Council can help their project along.

Today was a milestone in the conversion of the historic Cumberland Church into a center for community events on the east side of old Albany: The steeple was put back on.


Cumberland update: Steeple’s still up there

Written August 27th, 2021 by Hasso Hering

Every evening lately I’ve ridden the bike past the former Cumberland Church to see if the steeple had been lifted off and moved in advance of moving the building itself, as is the plan. As you can see above, the answer is “not yet.”

Written August 24th, 2021 by Hasso Hering

These are the last days of  Albany’s former Cumberland Presbyterian Church at its historic site. So if you want to refresh your memories of how it fit into the neighborhood, better take a look before it’s too late.
