Throwback Thursday - Cambria

This week's #ThrowbackThursday post is coming from Cambria County!


Pictured below is the Johnstown Roxbury Bandshell!


Known as the original, "House of Rock," the Roxbury Bandshell was built in 1939, located at the Roxbury park in Johnstown PA, born in the great depression. It was built as a tribute to the strength of the Johnstown people and their determination to survive the depression and to build a better future.  This magnificent rock-strong Bandshell was filled with songs of hope and optimism, where entertainment could uplift people fighting through the economic struggles of their day.
