The most popular stop in Johnson City is the LBJ Boyhood Home, managed by the U.S. Park Service. LBJ was five years old in 1913 when his family moved from their country home near the Pedernales River to this simple frame house. The visitors center provides information on this location, nearby Johnson Settlement, and other LBJ attractions. Park admission is free of charge, a stipulation of the late president. Johnson City hosts Historic Nugent Street Market Days on the third weekend of every month from April through October, with antiques, crafts, collectibles, and food booths. From Johnson City, head west to the tiny community of Stonewall, the capital of the Texas peach industry. The road passes through miles of peach orchards, and during early summer, farm-fresh fruit is sold at roadside stands throughout the area. According to Indian legend, the rock is haunted. Sometimes, as the rock cools at night, it makes a creaking sound, which probably accounts for the story.
