Wagner-Ritter House & Garden

Join JAHA’s historian, Amy Regan, for an outdoor event at the Wagner-Ritter House & Garden! The garden, which is planted with the heirloom vegetable varieties available in the late 1800s, was central to the family’s livelihood by providing fresh vegetables, eggs, and even some extra income.

Due to COVID, we will not be touring the house — but we’ll have a delightful afternoon in the garden discovering how our immigrant ancestors lived. Join us!

Admission is $4 for JAHA members, $6 for non-members. RSVPs are encouraged to Angela Ashby at 539-1889 x311, or at the Heritage Discovery Center or Johnstown Flood Museum.
