5 Municipal Office History ***All pictures of Municipal building supplied by the town of Johnson The old building that was on this site was torn down to make room for the new Municipal building that I am presenting today. The old building was believed to be a post and beam house with a garage/barn. All the land was owned by Marion and Milton Prescott who now are deceased. The lumber from the tear down was later reused for the rebuild of the power house bridge that was lost to heavy snow in March of 2001. The municipal office building was built in 1999 which was a design build project. The contactor was DEW Construction from Williston, Vermont and the Architect was Damon Turner from Waterville. There was a committee of Select board members, Village Trustees, the Town Clerk and taxpayers on the design committee, all of which had a hand in the erection of the current days building.
