Johns Creek

Johns Creek is an 8.0-mile-long (12.9 km)[1] stream which begins in southern Forsyth County, Georgia and runs south-southwestward through the eastern part of northern Fulton County, Georgia (formerly the separate Milton County). It is a tributary of the Chattahoochee River and has no official stream gauges.

The history of the creek's name is believed to have originated with John Rogers, an ancestor of the noted writer Will Rogers.[citation needed]

The name of Johns Creek, Georgia, incorporated in late 2006, is taken from this creek that runs through the center of the new city.
