Johnstown Flood National Memorial      Johnstown, Cambria County


The South Fork dam failed on Friday, May 31, 1889 and unleashed 20,000,000 tons of water that devestated Johnstown, PA.  The flood killed 2,209 people but it brought the nation and the world together to aid the "Johnstown sufferers."  The story of the Johnstown Flood reminds us all, "...that we must leave nothing undone for the preservation and protection of our brother men."

Johnstown Flood National Memorial, preserves the ruins of the South Fork Dam, part of the old lakebed, and some of the buildings of the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club. In the visitor center, see a National Park Service-produced film, nicknamed "Black Friday," that tries to recreate the Flood.  Film is shown at 15 minutes past the hour (9:15, 10:15, 11:15, 12:15, 1:15, 2:15, 3:15, 4:15).
