How did Kresston get it’s name? The founder of Johnson Development Corp., Larry Johnson, grew up in the West Texas town of Kress about an hour South of Amarillo. Raised amidst a 300-acre tenant farm, Larry’s days were filled with milking cows, hauling hay, and countless hours spent atop his father’s trusty Ford tractor. It was there that the value of hard work and cultivated a deep-seated affection for the land—a passion that would later fuel his ascent as a leader in residential development. Larry passed away in 2022, and the name was a tribute to his history.
