Located in east central Georgia, Johnson County was established from the already existing counties of Washington, Emanuel, and Laurens. It was created on Decemner 11, 1858, and was the 129th county to be organized in the state. From its inception, the county has been home to a hardworking and spirited people who are loyal to their neighbors and unyielding in their sense of civic and patriotic duty. It is their story that is celebrated, in word and image, within the pages of this treasured volume. Over 200 photographs from the archives of the Johnson County Historical Society, the Wrightsville Headlight, and the Johnson Journal shed light upon bygone days in the county, when residents lived and worked at a pace set by nature rather than technology. Readers will return to a hallowed time in a young and optimistic America, when the South was full of charming small towns and communities where no one knew a stranger. Teeming with faces of the past, this visual journey will pique the interest of anyone who has ever called the county home and will warm the hearts of those who remember the Johnson County of yesteryear.
