The Irvin Allen/Michael Cresap House is located fifteen miles southeast of Cumberland, MD, in Oldtown, Maryland, formerly King Opessa's Town, a Shawnee Indian Settlement along the banks of the Potomac. The house is easily reached from Interstate 68 by way of Maryland Route 51, as well as from the trail/Towpath of the C & O Canal National Historical Park, which attracts thousands of history buffs and recreational visitors each year.
