Mastodon Preserve

In 2016 the Thirty-One Company made a donation of 3+ acres near their former company headquarters to the Village of Johnstown. This property was the official site of the 1926 discovery of the Johnstown Mastodon. It is located adjacent to the Johnstown Trailhead Park at 187 E. Jersey Street.

​In 2019 a packed limestone trail was installed  on the donated property. The trail ends at a swampy bog where the young mastodon many years ago met his demise.

The picture above shows a replica of “Johnnie Mastodon” that the Park and Recreation Department would like to see installed at the Mastodon Preserve.  As always, funding is needed to see this project become reality.
