    Memorial: The Johnstown Flood occurred on May 31, 1889. It was the result of the catastrophic failure of the South Fork Dam situated on the Little Conemaugh River 14 miles upstream of the town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, USA, made worse by several days of extremely heavy rainfall. The dam's failure unleashed a torrent of 20 million tons of water from the reservoir known as Lake Conemaugh. The flood killed 2,209 people.

    April 14, 1834, the Pennsylvania legislature officially changed the name of the boomtown at the intersection of the Western Division of the Main Line Canal and Allegheny Portage Railroad from "Conemaugh" to "Johnstown." Joseph Johns had given his town the name of Conemaugh in his 1800 charter, but over the years people began calling it Johnstown out of respect to Johns. This sketch by George Storm shows the Johnstown canal basin. (dkb)
