Stonewall: Historic Junction School Open House


March 16, 2019 - 11:00am to 4:00pm
Historic Junction School Open House

All are invited to visit during the Open House at the former rural Junction School, located at 144 State Park Rd 49, just a mile from Stonewall, Texas.
Visitors will be able to sit in the old desks and write on slate boards. Park staff will interpret the story of President Johnson’s deep connection to public education.
All are invited to attend. This is part of the Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools Driving Trail. "Driving Trail, established 2006, links 16 historic schools to Vereins Kirche, first Gillespie County School built 1847 on Fredericksburg Market Square. The 120-mile Trail Map directs visitors into the countryside to see one, several, or all schools. See early school BBQ pits, outdoor pavilions, stages and stage curtains, teacherages, tin schools, and two Presidential Schools. No two are alike. Spend an hour or the day. Schools listed on National Register of Historic Places. Members of Country School Association of America. Today they function as community and learning centers, rentals for reunions, other social gatherings, and unique destination weddings."
