This site features a cornucopia of materials on Johnstown, Pennsylvania, its history, and culture. Several museums constitute the Johnstown Area Heritage Association, and they include the Johnstown Flood Museum, Heritage Discovery Center/Johnstown Children's Museum, and Wagner-Ritter House and Garden. Visitors should definitely check out the link on the Flood Museum, which documents the infamous flood that devastated Johnstown in 1889. The thorough description of the flood includes photos and descriptions of the "Oklahoma House", a type of temporary pre-fab house that was erected by the government to house those who lost their homes to the flood. Visitors will also find interesting the story behind the rebuilding of the library that was swept away in the flood, as the man who funded the new library was the same person responsible for the dam that broke and caused the flood.
