The Churches of Cambria City Walking Tour

Heritage Discovery Center

The grand success of the Cambria Iron Company in the late nineteenth century led thousands of immigrants to Johnstown, with many settling in Cambria City and Minersville. As a result, ten ethnic churches were built within the fourteen-acre Ward, with each serving purposes beyond religious faith. Each tour will begin at the Heritage Discovery Center.

*Due to the nature of this tour, we are limiting the number of tickets available to 20 per tour; the tour will be offered August 20, September 24, and October 15 as well.

**Tours will only feature the exterior of these churches, as many are active establishments.

Ticket Prices:
– Student $5.00
– Adult $7.00
– Senior $5.00
