Honoring Our Area’s Veterans

Located within 1st Summit Arena, the Veteran Museum is a place where you can preserve and honor the memory of a loved one who served proudly and honorably in the armed forces of the United States of America.

The museum is a special place to pause and reflect on our past and into the future. Unlike most war museums, the War Memorial Veterans Museum is a more of a personal nature than just equipment, weapons and such items

The museum is open during all the Johnstown Tomahawks home hockey games. There is no charge for visiting the museum, but all donations would be gladly accepted.

Be a Part of Cambria County War Memorial History

The public is invited to participate in a Tribute to Loved Ones. For only $50 you can purchase a 2.5″ by 2″ commemorative name plaque. The plaque is permanently attached to a seat at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena.

The Cambria County War Memorial, a sports arena and auditorium, has been in operation since October 16, 1950. The Arena is the outgrowth of the initiative of the Johnstown Lions Club, under whose sponsorship representatives of the 50-odd civic organizations dedicated themselves early in World War II to support the idea of a war memorial. There was much deliberation on the important subject of what form the memorial should take. The view that the memorial should be practical with a useful purpose, won strong local support. The selection committee decided on an indoor sports arena as the great need of the community.

The money from the name plaques goes to help with the collection of items in the veteran’s museum and to keep the eternal flame in memorial park lit. The museum is open during most events at the Cambria County War Memorial. The museum has a collection of uniforms and other artifacts from various wars. There is also a large collection of newspaper articles on Cambria County Veterans.
