Johnsburg has been my home my entire life. The atmosphere you get when you visit is one of the best feelings ever! When ever something exciting happens, the whole village is there to support, for example when they Skyhawks Football Team made it to State. The community is very welcoming and you will always be able to call Johnsburg your home.

For those wanting small-town appeal with larger cities that have lots of restaurants and shopping nearby, Johnsburg is a perfect town to live in. The only challenge is that we're far from a freeway and a ways from Chicago and Milwaukee. Overall, Johnsburg is a great place to raise a family and do life.
Johnsburg is a very welcoming community. The town consists widely of corn fields so the people consist of a lot of rednecks. However, the people of the town know how to have a good time and are super fun to hang around with. The population is very small so almost everyone either is family or close friends. Football is a huge part of the suburb's culture. Every Friday night, you will find almost every person at the local high school rooting on their sons and friends. Local parks and bowling alleys are frequent locations people are at enjoying their time on this earth. Johnsburg is a country town full of fun and excitement.
