Synonymous with the floods of Johnstown is the Johnstown Inclined Plane. Constructed after the first flood on May 31, 1889, the Incline was built to develop the higher grounds residentially. When floodwaters swept through the Conemaugh and Stonycreek valleys on March 17, 1936 and again on July 20, 1977, it was the Incline that carried men, women, and children to safety. Today, it serves as the historic focal point of our area.
