The Waverley Hotel is indeed a piece of history. Located at the corner of First and Dunsmuir in the "heart" of Cumberland, British Columbia, it carries it's 120 year history with a charm that continues to be the focus of what's happening in this increasingly popular little village.
Constructed in 1886 as the Temperance boarding house, the facility housed many in a time when mining was Cumberland. In the 1920's it became a licensed establishment and has been serving the local and tourist population ever since. In the mid 1980's Harvey and Shannon Brown purchased the Waverley and have been running it as a "family" operation very much in the spirit of the vibrant community of Cumberland. Both Harvey and Shannon have been involved in the village throughout this period. Shannon served as chair of the Cumberland Health Centre on the Provincial Health and Labour Board. Harvey was on village council from 1983-96 culminating in 2 terms as mayor.
