History: Johnson County was created on December 21, 1837 by the legislature of the Wisconsin Territory. The county was carved out of territory formerly in Dubuque County, and was not initially provided with a civil govement, instead being goveed by Cedar County officials. It was named for the US Vice President Richard M. Johnson. The first courthouse in the county was a two story log cabin structure, built in 1838 in the town of Napoleon, two miles south of Iowa City. Napoleon was located in a flood plain, however, and the second courthouse in the county was built on the hills north of Napoleon in the area that became Iowa City.
