The center of all community activity was St. Johns Catholic Church, which stood on the highest spot in town. Its steeples were visible when entering the village.

On the other side of Johnsburg, Pistakee Bay was an unsettled area known for good hunting and fishing. Many of the visitors to Pistakee were wealthy businessmen or Chicago politicians who built large mansions here. The Pistakee Yacht Club with its colorful regattas brought visitors to both participate in and observe the white sails flying across the water.

On summer evenings, the sound of music twinkled across the bay from parties held on the shore.
