Johnson County was established in 1836 and named for Thomas Johnson, one of the early settlers who came to the Doe Valley from Virginia. The county seat is Mountain City. For most of its history, Johnson County’s economy has been dependent on agriculture. Today, tobacco remains the largest cash crop. In the first half of the century, Johnson County was known as the “Green Bean Capital of the World.” For more information on Johnson County, please go to the Tennessee Encyclopedia of History & Culture website.
