Preserving our heritage, revitalizing our community through the Johnstown Discovery Network. The Johnstown Area Heritage Association was founded in 1971 as the Johnstown Flood Museum Association, but soon broadened its themes to include immigration to the area around the turn of the century, iron and steel, and the way of life in industrial communities.

The Johnstown Area Heritage Association is a non-profit, membership-based organization that preserves and presents Johnstown’s nationally significant stories to the nation. To do that, we provide high-quality educational, cultural and recreational experiences in the area’s unique historic settings through a linked system of attractions and historic districts known as the Johnstown Discovery Network.
We operate the Johnstown Flood Museum and the Frank & Sylvia Pasquerilla Heritage Discovery Center. We opened the Wagner-Ritter House and Garden in 2006, the Johnstown Children’s Museum in 2009, and Peoples Natural Gas Park in 2012. Other major JAHA programs include the AmeriServ Flood City Music Festival, as well as a variety of additional cultural programming and special events scheduled throughout the year. In this way, we enhance the quality of life for those who live in and around Johnstown, bring positive national attention and visitors to our area, and contribute to the region’s economic development through heritage tourism.
In addition, JAHA is involved in a variety of community projects related to historic research, preservation, and community revitalization, which include but are not limited to the rehabilitation of the Johnstown Train Station and Blacksmith Shop. We maintain an extensive archive of photographs, documents and objects that are significant to the history of this area.
