Southmont Borough incorporated on June 2, 1919! It had a population of 300 people back then, and is today home to nearly 2,200. Nadine Carr, JAHA volunteer, has created a marvelous website exploring the history of Southmont, including its streetcars, neighborhoods, the Johnstown Country Club, schools, and much more.
