March 12, 1884: Johnson City’s new flour mill was rapidly nearing completion. The Comet reported that the building was almost done and some of the machinery was in place. It was expected to be at full capacity of 200 barrels per day by the end of May. The larger Model Mill on West Walnut Street was built 25 years later in 1909.

March 12, 1921: The Salvation Army re-opened in Johnson City; it had closed several years earlier. 

March 12, 1958: The Pro-To Club was incorporated in Johnson City. “Pro-To” stands for “Progress Together.”
