Pluses:  I grew up in Cumberland, it a wonderful place to raise children. Fort Hill High School is among the Best. The major crime rate is low and scenic view can not be beat!

Minuses:  The job growth is low and wages are not high, if your a young person tring to start out and want to make something of yourself, this is not the place

A good place to...  Visit or Retire

 When I lived in Cumberland all I ever dreamed about was moving somewhere else, now that I live in a big city the big thing I have learned is ... I never realized how valuable knowing your neighbor was. Life moves fast in this world and sometimes when you visit a place like Cumberland where people know their neighbors and say Hi when you walk down the street, it makes you stop and wonder what are we all really rushing around for?
