Johnson City

by: Sonya A. Haskins
The Johnson City area was originally settled in 1777 by pioneers from North Carolina with land grants. Dissatisfied with their representation in North Carolina, local citizens held a convention and formed the state of Franklin in 1784. This state was never recognized by Congress. It fizzled out in 1788, and Tennessee was formed in 1796. More settlers came to the new state, but the area was destined to grow into a city when a combination of railroad connections in the area sparked growth during the late 19th century.
