About This Place
Johnson Creek is a village in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 1,581 at the 2000 census. The village is located approximately halfway between Milwaukee and Madison, at the intersection of Wisconsin Highway 26 and Interstate 94.
The first two settlers were Charles Goodhue and Timothy Johnson, the latter of whom also founded nearby Watertown. While sometimes called Belleville, this caused it to be confused with another Belleville, Wisconsin, and the post office has always been named Johnson Creek.
