What is its history?
Johns Creek began as Cherokee trading posts along the Chattahoochee in the early 1800s. The discovery of gold in the foothills of Northeast Georgia (45 miles away) and subsequent Gold Rush in the 1820's led to the Cherokee's forced flight.

By 1900 the rural landscape was dotted with individual farms. Four main crossroad communities developed into social/business centers: Ocee, Newtown, Shakerag and Warsaw. In 1981 Technology Park/Johns Creek was established and is the home of 200 companies today.

A grassroots movement for cityhood led to incorporation in 2006. Read more.
