The Johnson Peak Ranch was also at one time called Meridian Peak. The ranch is located in between Iredell and Meridian, Tx just right off Highway 6, on Spring Creek Road.
In 1858 the Comanche and Kiowa raid near this summit resulted in the death of Peter Johnson and the capture of his son, who spent a short time with the Indians before escaping. The summit was thereafter known as Johnsons Peak, and later altered to Johnson Peak.
The highest mesa on this ranch is know as Johnson Peak, which has an elevation at its summit of 1,223 feet above sea level. Johnson Peak is in the portion of the Grand Prairie, which is known to have hilly terrain, shallow to deep stony cracking clay loam soils. The upper part of the mesa consists of limestone.
