Rooted in History!

    Johnston County is a destination rooted in history, located just 30 minutes east of Raleigh, and convenient for visitors traveling through NC at the crossroads of I-95 and I-40!  Our rich history runs deep, we invite you to learn about our farming history at the Tobacco Farm Life Museum, discover our connection to Hollywood at the Ava Gardner Museum, and stand in the echo of battles fought, at the 155th Anniversary Bentonville Battlefield Reenactment, March 21-22.

    When your quest for history is done, an outing to Carolina Premium Outlets for outstanding savings, exploring our recreation options, or just enjoying a culinary stop along the Beer, Wine, and Shine Trail offers more reasons to stop and stay a while in JoCo!  #VisitJoCo
