Johnstown in Cambria County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
After the flood eight of the valley's small boroughs, including Johnstown, consolidated into the City of Johnstown on December 18, 1889. The city's downtown was rebuilt adhering to Johns' original plan, thus preserving Market Square. On October 5, 1900, Johnstown's centennial year, the cornerstone was placed for this present city hall, built in the Richardsonian Romanesque style.
