Johnstown Flood Museum

Nick Wukovich’s Lower Town walking tour discusses Flood-surviving buildings and historical areas, sharing photographs, and telling stories. This tour is from Walnut Street to the Stone Bridge, covering an area that was completely devastated by the event.

One of the most important aspects of Nick’s research has been compiling photographs of victims and survivors, and pairing them with views of corresponding homes or businesses.

Walking tours will begin at the Johnstown Flood Museum and are $6, or $4 for JAHA members or with museum admission.
