Welcome to Johnston County

Thanks to all who voted for this website!

 

Johnston County was created at statehood in 1907 and is named for Douglas H. Johnston, governor of the Chickasaw Nation. It is located in southern Oklahoma and is 645 square miles. The county seat is Tishomingo. The population in the year 2000 was 10, 513. The Chickasaw capitol built in 1896 became the county courthouse. Johnston County was the home of both William H. "Alfalfa Bill" Murray and Johnston Murray, father and son governors of Oklahoma, and entertainer Gene Autry.
