Explore the History of Johns Creek

Johns Creek became a municipality when it was incorporated December 1, 2006, but our past began in the early 19th century in the trading posts along the Chattahoochee River in what was then Cherokee Indian territory.

19th Century

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.

1981

The founders of Technology Park/Atlanta (a technology business park established in 1970 by Georgia Institute of Technology graduates) 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 six million square feet of office, retail, and industrial space.

2000

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).
