About Stella

Founded in 2015, Stella Property Development and Event Production is a privately owned and operated company located in the Cambria City Historic District of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

We specialize in the restoration and reuse of historical and culturally significant properties and creating events that promote community through the celebration of heritage, tradition and common values.

As a family-owned and community-based company, we are firmly rooted in enhancing the cultural offerings and economic growth of the properties we own within the community in which we operate.

We strongly believe that the beneficiaries of Stella’s efforts are the people of the Cambria City Historic District, the City of Johnstown and The Greater Johnstown Metropolitan Area.
