Set within the rolling hills of historic Nemaha County, Johnson has gained notoriety as a traditional farming community. Located along the Heritage Highway Scenic Byway at the intersection of Highways 136 and 105 the ambience of small-town America combines with modern amenities to offer fine homes, churches, post office, bank and community library.

The new village park complex offers a playground area, softball and baseball fields, restrooms and picnic area.

Johnson’s annual Father’s Day Chicken BBQ weekend in June brings thousands of visitors to enjoy the many activities and events.

Johnson-Brock School is a class C2/D1 K-12 school. It was formed in 1968 when the school districts of Johnson and Brock consolidated. Johnson-Brock was named a National Blue Ribbon School in 2014.
