Magnificent old cemetery overlooking the city of Johnstown. Unknown bodies from the 1889 flood are located here, along with some of the most influential people who once lived here and developed the town. Well worth exploring.

My sisters and I visit Grandview Cemetery every time we visit Johnstown. Next visit will be August 2015 . Our dearest family members are in Grandview and we check in at the office to make sure our family resting places are all secure. We were raised in Kernville where our property ran along side of the old Grandview Cemetery wall... More

As cemeteries go, this is interesting because it is the final resting place of 777 unidentified victims of the 1889 Flood, among a total of 2,200 who were killed. It's interesting also because it has some grand monuments to prominent families of that era. It's still Johnstown's preeminent cemetery.

There are so many that are buried there that are from the 1889 flood that will never be know.... They speak to you loudly, but you can hear perfect silence. A place to ponder how such a disaster can be allowed to happen. But, one of the most majestic Cemetarys that I have ever seen in my life. So many... More

This is a beautiful cemetery to walk around. The unidentified victims' section is sobering. To see so many unmarked graves makes you realize the devastation the flood caused. I found it interesting that some headstones said drowned instead of died. It's rare to see a headstone name the cause of a death. I guess it was a way of honoring... More

Worth a drive through even if is just to see the graves of the unkown killed in the flood. But other than that it is just your average cemetery.

This is a hugh cemetery, the vistas are peaceful, rolling hills and many statues. It is very impressive to look at the section called thie "Unknowns" This is where the remains of those who could not be identified where laid to rest.

We went to the cemetary for 2 reasons. The first was to see the monument for the unknown dead from the flood and then second was because of the supposedly panoramic view of the city. We never did find the view after driving around for quite some time since the trees seemed to block everything. However if you just get... More

historical and beautiful resting place; this cemetery is the resting place of the dead (known and unknown) from the Flood of 1889. There are many interesting tombstones.
