Prior to 1889, The Village of Westmont was a small farming community. Following the Great Johnstown Flood of 1889, the Cambria Iron Company, the City of Johnstown’s major industry, planned the safer 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.
