Johnson Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 5 photos

I first visited Johnson City on August 15, 2005 while on a road trip from Ohio to Colorado. I passed through Johnson City a second time in the late afternoon on October, 16, 2007, It was on the second trip that I took the photographs on this page.

Johnson, Kansas, also known as Johnson City, was first called Veteran because it was founded by Union veterans of the War Between the states. The town was established in 1885 and a year later was moved and renamed to honor Colonel A. S. Johnson, land commissioner for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad and a member of the Johnson Town and Land Company. It is located in southwestern Kansas, at the junction of K-27 and US-160. The population of about 1,348 includes more than half the people who live in the entire county.
