In this photo, taken shortly after the flood, stands the Franklin Street (United) Methodist Church, which did survive the flood. The church building split the flood wave, sparing many of the buildings around Central Park. The church was built of old stone from the state canal system. It did sustain damage from the flood, but still stood in the wake of the disaster. It still stands today, having survived all of Johnstown's major floods. ~NMK
Conemaugh, was founded in 1800, but had not really grown much by the 1830s. However, Johnstown was appointed to be a key place on the Pennsylvania Canal. In 1828, the Pennsylvania legislature extended the canal's Western Division from Pittsburgh to Johnstown, largely because of the strengh of its river system. In 1832, Johnstown had 500 residents. The canal opened up in 1834 and by 1840, Johnstown had 1,377 residents and property near the canal basin skyrocketed in value.
