Johnson City, Oregon

Johnson City is a city located in Clackamas County, Oregon. It was a trailer park owned entirely by one man, whose residents voted to incorporate by a 49 to 10 vote on June 16, 1970. This incorporation avoided a 1969 Oregon law designed to prevent the profileration of small incorporated areas because the proponents had filed for an election before the effective date of the law. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 634.
