Johnson Creek is a village in Jefferson County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 2,738 at the 2010 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.
Johnson Creek was founded where the Union Pacific railroad crosses Johnson Creek just above where the stream empties into the Rock River. The Union Pacific spur currently runs from Fort Atkinson to Clyman Junction. The economy is now more dependent on Interstate 94. A large outlet mall shopping complex was built in 1998 to capitalize on this traffic. The once famous hotel and supper club, The Gobbler, was in Johnson Creek.
The Johnson Creek School District operates a K-12 campus on the eastern side of the village, along Wisconsin Highway 26. It serves about 572 students. Johnson Creek High School won the 2007 Wisconsin State Baseball Championship in WIAA Division 4.
