From Germania to JAHA
Join JAHA for a festive evening celebrating the history of the Heritage Discovery Center!
In 1907, the Germania Brewing Company was built in Cambria City. It included a courtyard ringed by a five-story brew house, a bottling plant, and a cooperage and warehouse. Prohibition put the company out of business in 1919, and the buildings soon became the Ferguson Packing Company – and later still, the Morris Electric Supply Company, and then the Morris Paper Company. Since 2001, it has been the home of the Frank & Sylvia Pasquerilla Heritage Discovery Center, which is owned and operated by the Johnstown Area Heritage Association. This glorious building is a perfect location to tell the story of Johnstown’s rich industrial history – and we want to show you all of it! We’ll offer three floors of live music, hors d'oeuvres and desserts, and each ticketholder will receive six 2-oz. samples of locally-produced wine or beer.
