City of New Johnsonville



The city of New Johnsonville, Tennessee, is a relatively young community, having built up shortly after the Tennessee Valley Authority dammed the Tennessee River in 1944 to create Kentucky Lake. The original town site, which was established around the time of the Civil War (1864-1944), built up around the Johnsonville Depot, which once served Union soldiers. After the War ended, the depot, complemented by the convenient location of the Tennessee River, proved to be a valuable tool for industries in Johnsonville.

Though the original land for Johnsonville is now almost completely under water, the addition of Kentucky Lake to this part of Tennessee has created several attractive fishing holes for visitors to the newer city site to enjoy. In fact, over the last fifty years, fishing has become a major attraction to the area and anglers enjoy fishing the shallow waters for a variety of regional fish that thrive in the waters of Kentucky Lake.
