Unknown Tavern (closed)

11200 Old Mount Pleasant Road
Cumberland, MD 21502

From the Maryland Historical Trust (1976):

Located on the north side of U.S. Route 40 near Mount Pleasant Road to the east of Cumberland, an early frame house sits on the slope of a hill several feet above the road. It is an early to mid-19th century frame structure of 2 1/2 storys [sic] with a tin-covered gable roof. It has five bays along the principal facade and brick internal end chimneys. The house is covered with beaded clapboards and has Victorian schroll brackets supporting the wide roof overhang. The principal windows are double-hung wooden sashes with six-over-six lights with flat board framing with scalloped upper corners. The eight panel front door and the one window to each side are covered by a one-story porch with a shed roof, four columns and two pilasters. The interior has architrave trim about three inches wide. The two rooms to the west of the center hall were combined and paneled in recent years.

An early frame house on U.S. Route 40 near Mount Pleasant Road, east of Cumberland, was also used as a tavern. It is an early to mid-19th century period frame building somewhat altered to suit the styles and tastes of later periods.
