“The area known today as Johns Creek, GA, was once a meeting ground
between the rival Cherokee & Creek People. Inspired by the Chattahoochee River
that acted as a boundary for their tribal nations, they agreed to make
the Johns Creek area a “Sacred Place” where all tribal families could feel safe
during their peace talks.”

Today Johns Creek remembers past pioneer families with streets honoring these families such as Medlock, Rogers, McGinnis & Buice. These streets and schools are solid reminders of by gone days rich in city history.
By the year 2000 a grass-roots movement was underway to incorporate communities throughout northern Atlanta.
Following Sandy Springs successful example of incorporating in 2005, Johns Creek House Bill #1321 was passed and signed by Governor Sonny Purdue July 18, 2006. Residents gained more control over traffic growth and quality of life.

Suwanee started out as an Indian village. It was centered around the Chattahoochee River, but unlike the NEW city of Johns Creek, Suwanee was recognized as a city in 1837 with the erection of a post office. Today Suwanee enjoys the pedestrian small town feel with a New Town Center Park. A large interactive fountain called the “Big Splash,” shops and dining al fresco have become a gathering center to the Suwanee community.
The River Club located in Suwanee is home to many executives with stunning homes, nestled along the Chattahoochee River in unspoiled nature. The River Club is sought after for its gated privacy and casual elegance. Rivermoore Park, another master planned community was one of the first planned ‘park neighborhoods’ with an assortment of eclectic homes in various park neighborhoods. It is a nature lovers and walkers paradise with paths and meadow along the Chattahoochee.
