Work is now underway on the Heritage Discovery Center’s elevator!

We are delighted to report that the replacement of the Heritage Discovery Center’s broken elevator is now underway, and will be completed in time for the summer visiting season. Our warmest thanks to Lee Initiatives, GBU Life Members in Action, CTC Foundation, and the dozens of businesses and individuals who donated to help make this possible!

The timing is wonderful, as we are working to re-open our facilities more fully after a year of COVID-related restrictions. To that end, the HDC/Johnstown Children’s Museum is now open Sundays from noon-5:00 pm, in addition to 10:00 am-5:00 pm Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. We expect to maintain regular hours during the elevator installation.

Our events calendar is starting to fill up, too, with 1889 Flood walking tours, an 1889 flood presentation, and more! Stay tuned for more events to be posted in the coming weeks.
