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

In my high school days I worked here as an excavation technician. Hey! I had 50,000 people under me.

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.

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
