Invite your participation on A Day Trip to Stonewall and Fredericksburg
Wednesday, April 9, 2014
Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park tells the story of our 36th President beginning with his ancestors until his final resting place on his beloved LBJ Ranch. This entire “circle of life” gives the visitor a unique perspective into one of America’s most noteworthy citizens by providing the most complete picture of any American president. The ranch house, now opened to the public, is set up just as it was when it served as the Texas Whitehouse.
Following a tour of the Ranch, we‚Äôll drive into Fredericksburg for lunch and a tour of the historic Kingelhoffer Haus owned by one our own NCHM Friends, Karen Haschke. Of course we‚Äôll make a little time for shopping on Main Street.
