Johnstown Flood Museum On May 31, 1889, a neglected dam and a phenomenal storm led to a catastrophe in which 2,209 people died, tens of thousands were left homeless, and a prospering city became a wasteland. The museum features three floors of exhibits that tell the story of the despair of this great tragedy as well as the rekindled spirit of Johnstown.

Johnstown Chiefs Hockey The Johnstown Chiefs have provided affordable family entertainment to the region for over 20 seasons. The Chiefs are a member of the ECHL, the premier "AA" hockey league in North America, and play in the historic Cambria County War Memorial Arena.

    Michael Bucheit, Western Training Coordinator, Pennsylvania State Parks

  • "In my years of working with campuses hosting our youth conference of 2,500 attendees, I have never worked with a finer staff. Their attention to detail, professional delivery of service and standard of excellence is unmatched."
    Chery Otermat, Director of Operations, CE National

  • "Overnight accommodations at the Conference Center are very inviting and meet our every need. Our conference is a week long and the comfortable, cheerful rooms make it a short one. Rooms are well appointed and maintained equally as well."
