Sandyvale is a pioneer cemetery that was developed by the Horner family and used by many first families when the City of Johnstown, Pennsylvania was established in 1800. The veteran’s graves date from the Revolutionary War through World War II. Sandyvale has been a part of the fabric of the City and region for over two centuries. In the early years it provided a gathering place for many community civic and social events. It was a beautiful green spot in the pioneer days but with the industrial era and the development of the steel mills and plants and the birth of the railroad access to this industry, it came to be an area that was isolated and forgotten, sustaining extensive flood damage and neglect for many years.
Currently the site is 10.6 acres of flat grassy lawn and is the last large open green space in inner city Johnstown.
A Master Plan program has been coordinated by the renowned design and landscape architectural firm of Marshall – Tyler – Rausch, LLC to preserve this historic location creating a beautiful, thriving, self-sustaining memorial botanical garden.
