Johnson County, located in the northeastern part of Kansas, was established on August 25, 1855, and got its name in honor of Kentucky Governor and U.S Senator, Thomas Johnson. The county encompasses about 480 square miles and is part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. Johnson County played a significant role in the early history of Kansas, particularly during the "Bleeding Kansas" era of the 1850s, which was marked by violent conflicts between pro-slavery and anti-slavery forces vying to influence the future of Kansas and its government.

The land that makes up Johnson County was originally home to several Native American tribes, including the Shawnee, who were relocated there in the early 1800s. The Santa Fe Trail, a major trade route between Missouri and Santa Fe, New Mexico, passed through the county, bringing travelers and commerce into the region.

Following the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, settlers from across the United States began pouring into the Kansas Territory with the aim of influencing its future as a slave or free state. This led to an influx of settlers to establish pro-slavery communities, such as the town of Oxford, which played a significant role in U.S. history during the territorial period. Conversely, others like John Brown and his supporters advocated for the formation of a free state, which contributed to the violence witnessed in the era.

In the 20th century, Johnson County experienced rapid growth due to its proximity to Kansas City, with developments in transport infrastructure and residential areas. Today, Johnson County is an affluent and bustling suburban community, known for its excellent school systems, parks, and quality of life.

Fun fact: The Johnson County Museum houses the famous All-Electric House, which was designed in 1953 as the home of the future. This model house has futuristic features such as an electric curtain opener and a television built into the kitchen cabinet, showcasing the mid-century vision of American living.
