Johnson County is made up of seven “communities” within our county. Each rich in heritage and tradition.
Trade- generally considered Tennessee's oldest community, Trade was established as a trading outpost in the 18th century and was visited by English-speakers as early as 1673.
Butler- known as “the town that wouldn’t drown” as it was relocated to higher ground to make way for Watauga Lake.
Laurel Bloomery- known for its beautiful mountains and secluded valleys.
Shady Valley- known for its cranberry bogs that it celebrates each year during the Cranberry Festival. Also known for “The Snake”, a 489 twist, turn, and curve motorcycle ride through some of the most beautiful country in the United States.
Doe Valley- so named for the expansive population of deer.
Roan Creek/Forge Creek- both communities have rich histories dating back to Civil War times and before.
All of these communities connect to the County Seat which is Mountain City. The Population of Mountain City proper is 2485 people with approximately 500 residents living in one of 7 lower income housing developments, within the city limits. Our community is focused on developing a reputation in the Southeast area as a cultural center where community members can develop their crafts and skills with the opening of the new Johnson County Center for the Arts and Heritage Hall Theater, known region-wide for its beautifully restored theater and stage.
We are a community that values our traditions and works to maintain a “simpleness” to our life and lifestyle.
