In the Good Old Summertime Collection: Getaway destinations of a bygone age in Cumberland County

  • Updated

Any deep dive is bound to make a splash followed by a ripple.

Throughout its history, Cumberland County has played host to a variety of getaway destinations often built around such natural features as mineral springs, inland lakes and waterways.

In many cases, transportation had an influence over how far and fast each summertime attraction progressed in a cycle that moved from pent-up demand to a popularity surge to a shift in consumer preferences and a re-purposing of the grounds.

Fairs and festivals have emerged that lend such a sense of identity and tradition that local residents plan reunions and homecomings around Summerfair and Jubilee Day.

In this series, The Sentinel will explore the origins of 12 local attractions (running one a day through June 17) using material drawn from past newspaper articles along with information available through the Cumberland County Historical Society and other online sources.
