The "Gem" of Monmouth
Dr. Charles Cumston
It was his vision and financing that led to the construction of this unique, one-of-a-kind space. Costing $20,000 to construct, Dr. Cumston is the namesake of this irreplaceable treasure.
His creativity, artistry, and talent are all on display at Cumston Hall. As lead designer and a native Monmouth resident, Harry Cochrane endeavored to create a breathtaking monument to his beloved town. Having never designed an actual building before, he found his inspiration from the people who helped...and did a great job for his first time!
