Term: Johnson Creek [origin of place name]

Definition: Had its inception when Timothy Johnson and Charles Goodhue made a claim upon land upon which the main part of the village is now located... Johnson Creek was known as Belleville as late as 1873, but always bore its present name as a post office.
