Nice way to experiance early Johnstown history but more information would be better! Really wasnt much around this and it is off the beaten path and rather hard to locate.

This is a nice look at history in the area but I wish there was a little more information to it. Most people do this when they go to the Discovery Center which is across a very busy road from this.

This is a well cared-for family home from 1860, continuously occupied by the Wagners, then by their daughter's family who married a Ritter, until the 1990's. Most furnishings are family heirlooms; even the wallpaper is authentic! There's a lovely heritage garden out back, complete with...More
