For anyone that likes to stroll through cemeteries reading the headstones and marveling at the dates, this is a one of a kind experience. Within the cemetery are buried the remains of those found after the 1889 flood that were not able to be identified. The cemetery is a few blocks from the inclined plane, so it is easy to... More

This is a very large cemetery so it is very easy to get lost. Answers to No's of grave sites and family names can be answered by the office staff which are very helpful.

Beautiful, historic cemetary in Johnstown, PA. There is an area for the graves of the unknowns who were lost in the great flood.

This is a very somber place where you can see the graves of the unknown and the graves of entire families that died during the great flood. Go to the Visitor's Center first so you can appreciate all the more what took place that caused so many people to perish in a few short hours. Recommend you take the road... More

I visited Grandview a few weeks ago and I was so impressed with how nicely it is kept. I am from Florida so all the small hills with graves looked so pretty. My mother, sister and I were looking for our family. It was so nice that everyone were buried together. I did have to go to the office to... More

So many impressively large gravestones. The family bond in the past was prevalent here. So much history including the 777 unknown graves. We are going back today. You need a few hours to really see it all.

After we saw the movie at the Visitor Center, we were inspired to visit the Grandview Cemetery. The Johnstown Flood was such a tragic event. We walked around reading the headstones. Many families died together on that day. It is a sobering experience demonstrating how short and unpredictable life is. The cemetery is large and seemed to be well maintained.

Grandview is a magnificent cemetery that tells the history of Johnstown, its Steel Mills, its Floods and thousands of its people, such as WW II Flying Ace, Lt. Col. Boyd "Buzz" Wagner. If youre a history buff or a genealogy researcher, Grandview is sure to satisfy your curiosities.

Large cemetery, many of the victims from the flood are there. Worth a visit if you are doing the Johnstown Flood tour circuit. Also has many interesting burials so if you are just interested in the garden cemetery movement it's also worth some time.

This is a nice place to visit they have over 1,000 grave sites and many of them include local veterans and their families buried there. They keep it real nice and neat and put the flags on the graves to honor our veterans on veterans day.
