All Aboard For Cumberland, was produced by the National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Department of the Interior, in cooperation with the City of Cumberland, the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO), and the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NACP). It was created under the direction of Carol D. Shull, Keeper of the National Register of Historic Places, National Park Service, Patrick Andrus, Heritage Tourism Director, and Beth L. Savage, Publications Director. All Aboard For Cumberland is based on information in the files of the National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmark collections. These materials are kept at 800 N. Capitol Street, NW, in Washington, open from 8:00am to 12:00pm and from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday, except federal holidays.

Kathy McKenney, Historic Planner/Preservation Coordinator, Department of Community Development for the City of Cumberland conceptualized the project, took photographs and compiled written materials for the itinerary. Text for the travel itinerary was written and edited by Kathy McKenney, Nathan Poe and Shannon Bell (NCSHPO), and excerpted with permission from the sources noted. Nathan Poe (NCSHPO) created the design for the travel itinerary. Nathan Poe and Shannon Bell coordinated project production for the National Register. Special recognition is also due for contributions to the project from the Canal Place Preservation and Development Authority and the Chesapeake and Ohio National Historical Park.

Thank you to all of the individuals, organizations and institutions who worked so diligently on this project.
