An Important Historical Cemetery

A visit to this cemetery amplifies the destruction and loss caused by the flood. Also a great view of the city.

If historic Cemeteries are something you find interesting, then this place is for you. Beautifully landscaped, sloping hills and headstones from the Great Flood and beyond await.

Seeing the graves of the unknowns is a rather moving experience. Is a large number and they are all located in one area of the cemetery and it is very close to the entrance. It is a large cemetery and very well taken care of. The road we used was somewhat steep and had some twists and turns, take care.

Loved the history. Since this is a family burial spot, however, its always a little sad to be there.

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.
