Johnston County, located in the great state of North Carolina, has a rich and diverse history dating back to its establishment in 1746. The county was formed from the western portion of Craven County and was named in honor of Gabriel Johnston, who served as Governor of North Carolina from 1734 to 1752. The county seat is Smithfield, which was incorporated in 1777.

Johnston County is situated in the state's Coastal Plain region and has played a significant role in agriculture, particularly tobacco, cotton, and sweet potato production. The county's fertile soil and its location near major waterways contributed to its agricultural success. The Neuse River, the longest river in North Carolina, runs through Johnston County and has been essential in providing transportation and commerce throughout its history.

During the American Civil War, the Battle of Bentonville took place in Johnston County in March 1865. This battle was one of the last attempts by the Confederate Army, led by General Joseph E. Johnston, to thwart the advancing Union Army under the command of General William Tecumseh Sherman. The Confederate forces ultimately succumbed to the Union Army, and the battle marked the end of significant Confederate resistance in the Carolinas.

In more recent years, Johnston County has become a hub for manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries, as well as the home to significant transportation infrastructure such as Interstate 95 and Interstate 40. The county has experienced substantial population growth due to its proximity to the Research Triangle Park and the cities of Raleigh and Durham.

One fun fact about Johnston County is that it hosts the annual Benson Mule Days event in the town of Benson, drawing thousands of visitors to celebrate the role of the mule in rural southern life with rodeos, arts and crafts, dancing, and live music. The town was established in 1887 where two railroad lines crossed, and while its original purpose was to serve as a hub for the timber industry, it grew to become a significant agricultural center in the county.
