The City of Johns Creek , Georgia, lies along the banks of the historic Chattahoochee River in the Piedmont plain of the Appalachian Mountains, in northeast Fulton County. Home to an estimated population of 76,728, the city shares a Metro Atlanta population of approximately 5.2 million, the fastest growing metropolitan region in the U.S. Close enough to Atlanta to take advantage of its vibrant culture and economic growth yet far enough away (30 miles) to experience a quieter lifestyle Johns Creek residents enjoy the best of both worlds in a mild, seasonal climate. At 1,050 feet above sea-level, Metro Atlanta has an average annual temperature of 61 degrees Fahrenheit. A sizable amount of the white collar, professional population that migrated to Metro Atlanta in the 80s and 90s for its low cost of living and high employment base settled in the Johns Creek community. Strong public schools were a big attraction for families. Recognizing the importance of education, Johns Creek parents poured sweat equity and donations back into the schools, making them the strongest in the state. Not surprisingly, innovative businesses soon followed to be near their employee base. Several Fortune 500 companies located in the master-planned Technology Park/Johns Creek , helping the 1,900 acre mixed-use development and the unincorporated community surrounding it to grow. The unincorporated community coalesced into a municipality when it was incorporated December 1, 2006, following state legislation and a voter referendum. Today, Johns Creek is the 10th largest city in Georgia with a median family income of $150,592, strong public schools and an inviting, relaxed lifestyle for people of all ages. About 20 miles northeast of Johns Creek is Lake Lanier, one of Georgia's most popular recreational spots, with 692 miles of shoreline and marinas for boating, fishing, water skiing and canoeing. Events of the 1996 Summer Olympics were held at the Lake and its annual 6-mile Holiday Light show is one of the world's largest. Local points of interest include the National Park Service's Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve & Heritage Center, Johns Creek Arts Center and the new 45-acre Encore Park in nearby Alpharetta with its 12,000 seat Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, summer home of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and venue for top musical acts.



History of Johns Creek

Johns Creek 's past began in the early 19th century in the trading posts along the Chattahoochee River in what was then Cherokee Indian territory. Through the years, the trading posts grew slowly into crossroads communities where pioneer families Rogers, McGinnis, Findley, Buice, Cowart, Medlock and others gathered to visit and sell their crops. (Today, reminders of those early farming families are still with us as we travel along streets and bridges named after them.) By 1820, the community of Sheltonville (now known as Shakerag) was a ferry crossing site with the McGinnis Ferry and Rogers Ferry carrying people and livestock across the river for a small fee. Further south on the river, the Nesbit Ferry did the same near another crossroads community known as Newtown. In the 1820s, the discovery of gold in the foothills of Northeast Georgia inside the Cherokee Nation approximately 45 miles north of today's Johns Creek led to America's first Gold Rush, the eventual takeover of the Nation by the US Government in 1830 and the subsequent forced flight ("Trail of Tears") of Cherokee Indians to Oklahoma and other areas of the west. Cherokee Indian Family A few Cherokees remained, the most famous being Sarah Cordery (1785-1842), the half-blood Cherokee wife of pioneer John Rogers (1774-1851), and their 12 children, including William Rogers (1805-1870), who fought for Cherokee rights during the last years of the Nation's existence in Georgia. John Rogers was a respected, influential plantation owner, Indian countryman and colleague of President Andrew Jackson. Rogers' 1804 home today, a private residence in Johns Creek was an overnight stopover for Jackson. Much later, the home was also visited by famed journalist Will Rogers, the great, great nephew of John Rogers. In 1831, much of the land in the former Cherokee Nation north of the Chattahoochee was joined into one big county called Cherokee. When Milton County was formed in 1858, the Johns Creek area was folded into it. Finally, in the 1930s during the Depression, Milton County was dissolved and all its land was absorbed into Fulton County. By that time, four main crossroad communities had developed into the social, educational and business centers of this rural, unincorporated northeast Fulton County: Ocee, Newtown, Shakerag and Warsaw. For the next 50 years, these communities helped bring a sense of identity to the largely undeveloped and under-populated area, as the nearby cities of Roswell, Alpharetta, Duluth and Suwanee and adjoining Forsyth and Gwinnett counties continued to grow and develop.Damaged oil of James McGinnis. In 1981, the founders of Technology Park/Atlanta (a technology business park established in 1970 by Georgia Institute of Technology graduates who wanted Atlanta to be a high-tech research center) bought 1,700 acres of rural land along McGinnis Ferry Road and Medlock Bridge Road/GA 141 to build a second campus/master planned community. Spotting tiny Johns Creek on an old map, they named their mixed use community Technology Park/Johns Creek . It was the first reference to Johns Creek as a place and it grew over the years to become the home of 200 companies many of them Fortune 500 firms with nearly 11,000 people spread over 6 million square feet of office, retail and industrial space. A sizable amount of the white collar, professional population that migrated to Metro Atlanta in the 80s and 90s for its low cost of living and high employment base settled in the Johns Creek community. By 2000, a grassroots movement to incorporate the Johns Creek area into a city was slowly developing. It was only one of three main communities north of the Chattahoochee in Metro Atlanta that was not incorporated by that time. (Today all of Fulton County north of the Chattahoochee River is incorporated.) Following Sandy Springs' successful incorporation in 2005, a legislative campaign was begun to incorporate the Johns Creek community. House Bill 1321 was passed, signed by Governor Sonny Perdue in March 2006 and approved by the residents of northeast Fulton in a July 2006 voter referendum. In November 2006, the City's first elected officials were voted into office, with the City of Johns Creek becoming official December 1, 2006.
