New Johnsonville, Tennessee

New Johnsonville is a city in Humphreys County located in west-central Tennessee situated along the Tennessee River. It is home to just over 1,900 residents. New Johnsonville is the product of Johnsonville, an older town previously in this area. Johnsonville was a bleak, sleepy community. It was the site of the 1864 Battle of Johnsonville during the Civil War. During this time, just about every tree had been cut down and used for structure or firewood and the Union army built a supply depot containing warehouses and stores. After the war, Johnsonville stayed an active town; many of the troops who had been stationed there remained in the area. Johnsonville was a constant struggle with nature as it was frequently flooded by the river. In the early 1940s, the town of Johnsonville had to move because of plans to build a dam across the river in Gilbertville, Kentucky. Hundreds of families relocated to a new area, on higher land, called New Johnsonville.

The two largest industries in the United States are located in New Johnsonville, these being Tennessee Valley Authority and Dupont. A major attraction in the city is Johnsonville State Historic Park. It is a 600-acre park, named for Andrew Johnson, who was once Military Governor of Tennessee, is situated on the eastern side of Kentucky Lake and overlooks the site of the 1864 Battle of Johnsonville. The Park features exhibits of the battle as well as offers hiking trails, picnic areas and a pavilion.
