Johnston County


Johnston County CourthouseJohnston County, North Carolina (estimated 2006 population: 152,143) is a largely agricultural community located in the Piedmont Crescent between Goldsboro and Charlotte. Johnston County, NC offers balmy summer evenings and a pleasant climate. Johnston's first townships: Bentonsville, Beulah, Boon Hill, Clayton, Elevation, Ingrams, Meadow, O'Neals, Pleasant Grove, Selma, Smithfield, and Wilders, were created in 1869 in an atmosphere of want and deprivation. By 1913, with the creation of Wilson's Mills, Cleveland, Banner, Pine Level, and Micro townships, Johnston County had ensured survival and was staking a claim on prosperity.

History buffs will love Atkinson’s Milling Co., (240 years old and still operating), Selma Union Depot (originally built in 1924 - restored and operational), Bentonville Battleground, and the Tobacco Farm Life Museum. Johnston County, NC is the birthplace of Ava Gardner and the home of the Ava Gardner Museum. Located in Smithfield, North Carolina, this extensive collection of artifacts representing Ava Gardner's life and career was predominately assembled by one man. Transportation is excellent with Johnston County's excellent road system, Johnston County Airport, and Amtrak available.
