Cambria County, Pennsylvania U.S. Census TIGER/Line map
Cambria County, Pennsylvania, is a coal and industrial area in the southwestern part of the state; its its county seat is Johnstown. It lies north of Somerset County, which has long been the seat of considerable Amish and Mennonite settlements. A small corner of this settlement reaches over into Cambria County, where the Weaver Church is located. In the mid-1950s three new congregations were established in the southern part of the county as the result of mission extension work, Elton, Walsall, and one in Johnstown. The latter city was founded by an Amish Mennonite, J. Johns (Tschantz) soon after 1800, after whom the city is named.
