Junction sits at the junction of the North and South Llano rivers, where the two spring-fed streams form the Llano River. Anchoring downtown is the 1929 Art Moderne Kimble County courthouse, designed by noted architect Henry T. Phelps. Plenty of lodging, dining and outfitting options await hunters and canoeists who flock each year to this self-proclaimed "Land of Living Waters.” Nearby, the South Llano River State Park offers camping, hiking, watersports and wildlife, most notably wild turkeys and migrating Monarch butterflies. In town a 1937 historic bridge crosses the Llano River at Schriener Park. For 32 years Rep. O.C. Fisher represented this picturesque edge of the Texas Hill Country in Congress. Relics of his political life and writings reside in a reproduction of his Washington D.C. office housed in the Kimble County Library. The Kimble County Historical Museum details the life of another local politician, Coke R. Stevenson, governor of Texas from 1941 to 1947. Stevenson’s only political loss came in the controversial 1948 election that sent a young Lyndon B. Johnson to the U.S. Senate. The museum also chronicles county history.
