The Village of Westmont was a small farming area in 1889 when the Great Johnstown Flood struck the City. Following the 1889 flood, the Cambria Iron Company, the City of Johnstown’s major industry, in search of a safer place, planned the hilltop section as a suburban residential district and built the Inclined Plane for direct access to the City. The Borough of Westmont was created by Decree of the Court of Quarter Sessions of Cambria County, from parts of Upper Yoder Township and Lower Yoder Township, on June 13, 1892.

We had a large tree fall in our backyard. Live on Wyoming st. Any suggestions for clean up? ...

One may see the exposed telephone wiring in the junction box. Of course, the technician's idea of protecting the inner wiring it to loosely drape a plastic bag over. It will NOT be of any real use come winter. ...

While walking along Goucher Street, in front of the baseball field, I noticed this telephone junction box in such bad condition. I've seen it many times before, while driving. But seeing it up close, I just had to stop, study, and realize that, because it is in such disrepair, it could impact people who are especially dependent on phone lines from their house such as Life Alert which is carried over phone lines. I suppose that since Verizon isn't making the money they used to make off of land lines, it is not as important and as such isn't as critical an "investment" in it replacement. ...
