The Charming Small Town In Texas That Was Home To Lyndon B. Johnson Once Upon A Time

Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
There are a lot of famous people from Texas (understandably – our state is huge!), including two former U.S. presidents: Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson, or “LBJ.” Johnson was born in the small town of Stonewall, home to just over 600 people in the present day. You can tour his boyhood home and one-room schoolhouse as well as a living history German farm, and even attend a peach festival in the summer!
Have you ever visited Stonewall? If so, we’d love to hear all about your experience in the comments. Don’t forget to check out our previous article for a nearby state park that’s worth a trip any time of year.
