After days of rain and years of poor maintenance, an earthen dam on Lake Conemaugh failed on May 31, 1889, sending 20 million tons of water roaring downstream to devastate the city of Johnstown. The flood killed 2,209 people and was one of the worst disasters in American history. Learn about those whose lives were changed forever by this disaster. Follow the path of the flood through exhibits and a film at the Visitor Center, visit the Clubhouse that was once a retreat for the wealthy on the shores of Lake Conemaugh, and walk on the remains of the ruined dam.

Johnstown Flood National Memorial is one of five national parks in the Laurel Highlands region.
