Historic Stonewall, TX
Known as the birthplace of Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th president of the United States, Stonewall takes pride in being peach and wine country. Along the Peach Blossom trail delicious peaches can be purchased in and around Stonewall and around at roadside peach stands. Many vineyards bless the Stonewall area and have open tasting rooms to sample their wines.
Two of the main attractions of Stonewall are the Lyndon B. Johnson State Historical Park and the Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch. The Visitor Center is the focal point of Lyndon B. Johnson State Historical Park. It contains memorabilia from President Johnson's presidency and interactive displays about the Land and People that shaped a president and includes a historic cabin, auditorium and amphitheater. A nature trail featuring a Hill Country botanical garden, winds past wildlife enclosures stocked with bison, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, Texas longhorn cattle, and other native wildlife. Bus tours of the working Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch start at the State Park Visitor Center pass by the one-room Junction School, LBJ's reconstructed birthplace, and the nearby Johnson family cemetery; where the former President is buried.
You can always experience the year of 1918 at the Sauer-Beckmann Living Farm near the LBJ State Park. Here, costumed interpreters carry out the day-to-day activities of a turn-of-the-century Texas-German farm family.
