Junction School

-A A +A
1910. Intersection of Park Rd. 49 and Klein Rd.
  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

This unassuming one-room schoolhouse is of significance primarily as the scene of Presi dent Lyndon B. Johnson's earliest education in 1912. Built as a rural school by the Fredericksburg Independent School District, the structure is clad in pressed-metal siding designed to imitate rock-faced stone, an interesting pretense for so small a building. The school remained in use until 1947 and was acquired by the National Park Service in 1973.
