Overview

Johnston is a very small town located in the state of South Carolina. With a population of 2,348 people and just one neighborhood, Johnston is the 131st largest community in South Carolina.

Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Johnston has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Johnston has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Johnston than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Johnston may be for you.

Johnston is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
