Focus on Johnson County was originally developed to complement the California Exhibition Resources Alliance traveling exhibit Overland: The California Emigrant Trail of 1841-1870. This on-line version features the 10 photographs depicting the locations of trail paths, campgrounds and Indian missions in Johnson County and the accompanying background information and historical quotes used in the original exhibit.
