The Johnstown Area Heritage Association is a non-profit that exists to preserve and showcase Johnstown's nationally significant stories to the nation. To do that, JAHA provides high-quality educational, cultural and recreational experiences in the area's unique historic settings. We operate three museums, the Johnstown Flood Museum which tells the story of the 1889 Johnstown flood; the Wagner-Ritter House & Garden, a house museum interpreting the domestic lives of 18th-century immigrants to the historic Cambria City neighborhood; and the Frank & Sylvia Pasquerilla Heritage Discovery Center; which tells the story of immigrants to Cambria City in the late 19th and early 20th century; and the new Johnstown Children's Museum, which is located inside the Heritage Discovery Center. In addition, JAHA holds a variety of additional special events throughout the year as well. In this way, we support the local economy by bringing positive national attention and visitors to our area. The festival is a wonderful program that helps JAHA provide a great experience for local residents, focus national attention here and bring people to visit. Along the way, everyone has a terrific time. Click here for more information about JAHA as an organization.
