Archives & Research

JAHA maintains extensive collections about Johnstown's history.

The Johnstown Area Heritage Association’s archives and museum collections include a wide range of materials relating to the history of Johnstown and the region. Perhaps best-known for our archives of photographs and documents relating to the 1889 Flood, collections regarding Johnstown’s industrial history, ethnic heritage, and 1936/1977 flood are some of the most consulted in our repository. JAHA also maintains a collection of artifacts relating to Johnstown’s history.
