Johnston County Is Genuine Americana

No theme parks, just genuine Americana, is what visitors to Johnston County discover. Smithfield, the county's oldest town and county seat, boasts the Johnston County Heritage Center, an historic district, a new riverwalk along the Neuse River, and the Ava Gardner Museum. Other attractions are the town of Selma, with its restored 1924 Union Depot; Kenly, with its internationally recognized Farm Life Museum; and the Bentonville Civil War battlefield. With the county's rural heritage, agritourism is a natural. Atkinson's Mill, one of the state's last water-powered grist mills, and farms offering tours, petting zoos, and seasonal pick-your-own crops attract tourists.
