This thoughtfully planned cemetery stands as more than a final resting place...it is a study in the melting pot of ethnicity and historic progress and devastation of the early industrial age of a city built on steel and coal. Make sure you pick up a map, and google some early Johnstown history to make the most of your visit.

This cemetery is a bit of a wonder itself. Be sure to stop at the office to the left after entering the gates to get a map and visitor info. The grounds set upon rolling hills and the circuitious streets make it a bit of a maze to navigate. Here are located the and memorial monument and the 777 unknown... More

Beautiful old cemetery with interesting funerary sculpture and well maintained grounds. The burial ground for tge un identified victims of the 1889 flood is worth seeing. It was a nice thing to do after visiting the blood museum.

It was so sad to see all the headstones with no names on them. If you go, look for the tall out of shape tree.

When my father died, he was cremated and his ashes were buried in the cemetery. Other relatives are buried there also. If people like visiting cemeteries, this is a good one to visit. The 1889 flood victims are buried there.

They put a fence around this place. Why? Well to keep people out of there.....after all they are just dying to get in. How do you review a cemetery? Lots of head stones, place is well kept, lots of history to be read on the tombstones. Big section where those who died from the floods are buried. Other wise it... More

I have been in a lot of cemeteries with researching and composing someone's genealogy. I have also visited different cemeteries to have respect and honor to different loved ones laid to rest in a cemetery. But I have never been in a cemetery as huge as Grandview. It is definitely worth just the trip if you like to explore a... More

This is the home of those unidentified who were lost in the Johnstown flood. It was very touching and humbling.

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