Johnstown Flood Museum
The Johnstown Flood Museum retells the horrific tale of what led to the flood on May 31, 1889 and the terrible aftermath of destruction that killed 2,209 people and left a prosperous town a wasteland. Through exhibits and media the events are chronicled. Exhibits include a relief map that uses lights and sounds to display the flood's path, artifacts, debris, a morgue book, and Victorian steroptic photographs. A restored Oklahoma house, which was a temporary structure used to house survivors, is also featured.
