History of Johns Creek, GA
Johns Creek’s past started out in the early nineteenth century in the trading posts down the Chattahoochee River with what was then Cherokee Indian territory.
Throughout the years, the trading posts expanded gradually into crossroads towns where pioneer families – Rogers, McGinnis, Findley, Buice, Cowart, Medlock among others – gathered to visit then sell their crops. (Currently, reminders of those early on farming families are still with us as we journey alongside roads and bridges named after them.)
By 1820, the community of Sheltonville (now referred to as Shakerag) was a ferry crossing site with the McGinnis Ferry and Rogers Ferry transporting folks and animals across the river for a small charge. Further to the south on the river, the Nesbit Ferry did the same close to yet another crossroads community called Newtown.
In the 1820s, the discovery of gold within the foothills of Northeast Georgia within the Cherokee Nation – roughly 45 miles north of present day Johns Creek – resulted in America’s first Gold Rush, the eventual takeover of the Nation through the US Government in 1830 and the following forced flight (“Trail of Tears”) of Cherokee Indians to Oklahoma along with other regions of the west.
