Second Settlement in Norton Township

Thomas Johnson first came to Norton Township
in 1814, and within three years he had
established the township's first sawmill along
the fast-moving waters of Wolf Creek. The
enterprising Johnson also erected a tavern,
store, and post office, all on the northeast
corner of this town square. In 1830 a grist
mill was added to the community. Predating
the founding of Barberton by seventy-seven
years, Johnson's Corner existed from 1817 until
1929, when it was annexed into Barberton.
