Construction began in 1876 and was completed by 1880, handmade entirely of bricks fired on site from French Broad River mud. Over the years various outbuildings were added, including a tool shed and blacksmith shop, barn, boarding house and cottage. In 1913 Sallie Leverett Johnson inherited the farmHistoric Johnson Farm, pen & ink drawing by Lee James Pantas, a new era began and the farm was operated as farm and summer boarding home for tourists.
