Johns began as a farming and sheep-raising community far removed from the county seat and territorial capital of Prescott. Soon after, the Mormon Church, represented by Bishop David King Udall, purchased 1,200 acres for Mormon colonizers to settle. With the building of the Lyman Dam, the town was finally able to provide adequate water for crops and began to thrive. The building of a power plant in the 1970s doubled the population of St. Johns, but many of the original settlersa descendants are still there as well, canning their gardensa harvest and dusting from their homes the dirt brought in by the wind that never stops blowing.

Although the streets are now paved and many of the old buildings and homes have long been razed, St. Johns has a unique story to tell.
