Cemeteries Flooded by the Kinzua Dam

Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir are part of the flood control system operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh District.

Located on the Allegheny River about 8 miles east of Warren, Pennsylvania, on Route 59, Kinzua, is a concrete gravity dam with a maximum height of 179 feet above the river and a length of 1,877 feet. Behind the dam is the 25-mile elongated Allegheny Reservoir whose shoreline encompasses nearly 100 miles of forested shoreline.

Numerous cemeteries were relocated during the construction of Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir in the early 1960s by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh District.
