Johnston Real Estate
Named in honor of Augustus Lucas Johnston, the Attorney General of Rhode Island from 1758 to 1766, and originally a part of Providence, Johnston became a separate town and was incorporated in 1759. The first settler to the area was Thomas Clemence in 1680. The one story house built by Thomas back in 1691 still stands today as one of the oldest homes in Rhode Island.
With a population today of 28,195 people, the Town of Johnston has loads of recreational activities, shopping and dining which make it an ideal place to live. Johnston has several parks including Johnston Memorial Park which is home to Johnston Parks and Recreations that offers countless sport programs from Youth Soccer, T-Ball, Volleyball, Basketball to Adult Basketball, Softball, Volleyball and much more. Snake Den Park offers over 1,000 acres that include walking trails, sceneries, wildlife and a working farm. Speaking of farms, Johnston has three farms that operate year round but are especially popular in the fall; Pezza Farm, Dame Farm and Salisbury Farm. Johnston also hosts the Annual Apple Festival which offers arts & crafts, food, fun for the kids, entertainment and pony rides.
