My Uncle Clarence Huff said he can remember when Cumberland had wood side walks with mud & dirt streets and live stock was run thru the streets. Uncle Jim Huff was the first one to have a radio in Cumberland and people came from far and near including him and Papa (Clarence Huff & John D. Huff) would go over Pine Mountain on a mule to listen to it.
