Johnstown, OH: The Perfect Columbus Retreat
Located just 30 minutes outside of Columbus and within proximity of several major highways, the Village of Johnstown boasts easy city access while maintaining a quaint “small-town America” vibe. In Johnstown, you can work and play in the city while enjoying the benefits of living in a quiet, historic community.
The land that is now Johnstown was originally given to Revolutionary War soldiers as payment for their services. However, after the land was sold, pioneers began to arrive in the area as early as 1806, and a village was laid out in 1813. It was a mostly agricultural area, even after its founding as a village in 1880, though village business slowly grew into the bustling community it is today.
Johnstown and its surrounding communities have seen rapid growth since 1970. New developments in the Village include new communities, like Concord Crossing, Kyber Run, Leafy Dell, and Concord East. A new business district is also being built on West Coshocton Street, and the Village itself is growing with new businesses more as more residents choose the quieter lifestyle of Johnstown over the big-city bustle of Columbus.
