History Research books

Over 100 books on local history, Georgia history, Southern history, and genealogy have been collected to eventually be housed in our archives.

Help us add to this collection with history related books (new or used) you would be willing to donate. A research library will become part of our future archives and be a resource accessible to the public.

Artifact Donations
Help Our Collection Grow

A goal of the Johns Creek Historical Society is to gather in one place the records and stories of the past to create both a physical and digital archive to preserve Johns Creek's history and make the records available to the public.

We are looking for the following to document life in the Johns Creek area during earlier times.

Our focus is 1800 to 2006 and items that relate to the area of today's Johns Creek, Old Milton County, Georgia, and southern states.

  • artifacts - household, farm, and personal items
  • photos of local stuctures, roads, general landscape, activities, and people
  • documents like letters, deeds, journals, receipts, military records
  • promotional items of events and businesses
  • school, church, cemetery, and civic club records
  • books, newspapers, magazines
  • maps
  • video and audio tapes of activities and families
  • memories and stories

Please contact us at info@johnscreekhistory.org

We are accepting donations of documents and other records, but can also make digital copies for our archives, if you want to retain your originals.

Donation of records to the Johns Creek Historical Society

The Miller Newtown Collection

On March 30, 2017 we accepted Susan and Dan Miller's donation of Susan's collection of files, maps, photos, and videos documenting the creation of Newtown Park. The collection also contains tapes, photos, and written memories of former students of the Newtown School and some oral histories of residents from Newtown's past.

If you are interested in helping sort, digitize, and catalog this collection, contact us.

Our thanks to the Millers for adding to the Society's archives of Johns Creek's history.
