A view from the Western Maryland Train Station, across Wills Creek, of Prospect Square. This is where Fort Cumberland was located during the time when Cumberland was the last gateway to the West; at a time when George Washington was a Lieutenant with the British Army. 
 
In this scene you can see the Allegany Co. Court House, the Masonic Temple and the steeples to the Emmanuel Episcopal Church and the First Presbyterian Church. In the foreground is Greene Street where there are located business offices and apartments.
