Considered to be one of the affluent Atlanta, Georgia suburbs, Johns Creek was ranked as third in the 2017 USA Today list of “50 best cities to live in”. The beauty of the area combined with traditional southern charm has made this community a coveted location to relocate to.
Johns Creek began in the early 19th century as just another of the trading posts along the Cherokee territory of the Chattahoochee River. As settlers expanded, pioneering families began to establish farms and use the trading posts to gather, visit and sell their crops. By 1820 the original families had established a ferry crossing site in the community of Sheltonville (now known as Shakerag), creating a business charging customers to carry livestock and people across the river to what is now Newtown. However, it was the discovery of gold in the 1820’s in the northeast foothills of Georgia that changed everything. This led to the first official Gold Rush in America and was responsible for the eventual takeover by the U.S. government of the Cherokee Nation in 1830. This takeover led to the infamous and shameful ‘Trail of Tears’ that forced relocation of this native tribe to Oklahoma and other American West areas.
There were a small number of Cherokees that remained in the area and one was the partial Cherokee Sarah Cordery, wife of John Rogers, one of the area’s pioneers. They were well-respected and maintained a plantation. The name of Johns Creek is attributed to the son of John Rogers, Johnson K. Rogers, when a local tributary was named after him.
Today, Johns Creek is part of the extension of high-tech office park known as Technology Park/Atlanta. This is due to the 1981 purchase of 1,700 acres by Georgia Institute of Technology and their master plan to use the woods and farmlands near Medlock Bridge Road and McGinnis Ferry for development. The area expanded to be the home of two hundred companies, many of which are Fortune 500 companies.
Johns Creek has the distinction of being associated with the larger metropolitan area of Atlanta, and yet this blossoming community is focused on health and education in ways that their founders would never have dreamed. Making use of the high tech influence, the area faces the same challenges of larger cities when it comes to medical waste disposal. There is an abundance of private, family-owned and independent healthcare providers as well as clinics and hospitals. Some of these include: Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Northside Hospital, and Wellstar North Fulton Hospital.
