Significance: The Kelly-Springfield Tire Plant is a technologically and historically significant industrial complex in Allegany County. The facility was in operation from 1921 until 1987 and served as Kelly-Springfield's only manufacturing plant between 1925 and 1962. The plant was critical to the development of Cumberland during the twentieth century, and is an important record of an early tire manufacturing plant. The cement house was one of the original buildings constructed at the Kelly-Springfield Tire Plant. The building contained the equipment used in mixing rubber cement. Rubber cement was used during the tire building process.
