JOHNS CREEK (CASS COUNTY)
JOHNS CREEK (Cass County). Johns Creek rises 5½ miles northwest of Atlanta in northeastern Cass County (at 33°11' N, 94°15' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth on Frazier Creek, three miles southwest of Bivins (at 33°00' N, 94°15' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses an area of sandy and loamy soils. Around its upper reaches the terrain is gently undulating to gently rolling; near its mouth the land is gently rolling to hilly. The area around the creek is flood-prone, and native vegetation includes water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The creek was named Johns Creek because it rises on the original land grants of John B. Denton, John Reeves, and John S. Hamilton.
