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 the Greater Johnstown area. Perhaps best-known for our archives of photographs and documents relating to the 1889, 1936, and 1977 Floods, we also have collections on a variety of topics, including industrial history and ethnic heritage. JAHA also maintains a collection of artifacts relating to Johnstown’s history.
