Johnsonville was an oil boomtown near the site of what is now Omega in northeastern Gregg County. The community was one of numerous such settlements, or camps, built mainly by the major oil companies near a local refinery during the oil boom of the 1930s. The town flourished for several years, but all but disappeared after World War II, when the oil industry declined. No population estimates were available for Johnsonville.
