Johnstown, OH

Located approximately 30 minutes from the John Glenn International Airport and a quick commute to Columbus, the state capitol, Johnstown has a charming, old-fashioned regional feel.

The Village of Johnstown is in the part of Ohio that was set aside as the US Military Tract, land for soldiers of the Revolutionary War to pay them for their service to our country. In 1810, President Adams deeded the land to veteran John Brown, who later sold it to Dr. Oliver Bigelow. Dr. Bigelow ultimately laid out the village and donated the alleys, town square, and streets.

Over a century later, farmer James Bailey found an almost complete skeleton of a mastodon, a distant relative to elephants, which became extinct over 10,000 years ago. The skeleton was then sold to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, where it remains today.

At its inception, the economy was based on agricultural needs and the businesses supported and served those needs. Since that time, Johnstown saw several major developments including a railroad in 1880, a newspaper, an opera house, telephone lines, and a water system, all by approximately 1904. Economic growth occurred after World War II, but more so in the late 1950s when home developments were built that consisted mostly of war veterans. Johnstown began slowly moving away from agriculture-focused economy and improved upon new industries thanks to the improvement of roads and automobiles. This allowed local residents to be able to commute to other locations.

As of today, some of the most top-rated activities and eateries in Johnstown include The Winery at Otter Creek, the Autumn Rush Vineyard, the Granville Milling Company/Country Store, Villa Pizza, Troyer’s Deli and Route 62 Barbecue.
