Cambria is brimming with historic architecture dating back to the 1800s, with an eclectic and charming collection of architectural styles. Victorian architecture, popular when Cambria was becoming a bustling mining town, was the inspiration for many of the buildings still standing today. Interpretations of the historic style are mixed with more modern influences to create a quirky and welcoming atmosphere characteristic of Cambria. Whatever your preference, the local architecture is sure to inspire awe. See each tour stop in the Visit Cambria app by clicking Tours in the Explore section, then clicking Historical Tours.

Start the Historical Walking Tour, developed by the Cambria Historical Society, at the Guthrie-Bianchini House. The original part of the house was built in 1870 and a succession of owners followed. The Bianchini family owned the house for 87 years beginning in 1914. In 1980, the house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Cambria Historical Society purchased the property in 2001, then reconstructed and renovated it, opening the Cambria Historical Museum in 2008.
