Why contribute?

The Steeples Project seeks to save three beautiful church buildings by finding self-sustainable reuses for them that add to the quality of life here in the Greater Johnstown area.

  • These former churches are monuments to the immigrant laborers and their families who founded Cambria City's parishes and survived through faith, cooperation and hard work.

  • The historical and architectural qualities of these buildings contribute to the Cambria City Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • All three of these buildings have the potential to contribute to the growing Cambria City Cultural District. One of them, now called The Grand Halle on Broad Street, already has been turned into a music hall and special-events venue for weddings and other private functions.

We need your help! Your contribution will enable us to maintain these beautiful buildings and plan for their new uses. Your gifts will help to save these special places and redevelop them into spaces that will add to Greater Johnstown's quality of life and bring new business here.

Your tax-deductible contribution will go to the 1901 Church, Inc., a 501(c)(3) corporation which has been certified as tax-exempt by the I.R.S. and is registered with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Charitable Organizations. While 1901 Church, Inc., was founded and established in Jennerstown, its mission and Board of Directors are now Johnstown-focused. To see a list of the current Board of Directors, click here.
