The Essential
Bountiful supplies of timber, oil and coal created booming steel towns like this pleasant burg in a valley of the Allegheny Mountains. The health-care industry shoulders most of the economy today, but the city is most famous for the devastating flood that swept down the valley in 1889, destroying Johnstown and claiming more than 2,000 lives. Sights related to the Great Flood are preserved in the area.
