History

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.
