Celebrate Lyndon B. Johnson’s Birthday with LBJ History at Stonewall Motor Lodge

The motor lodge’s press room is steeped in presidential history. 

Stonewall, Texas – July 23, 2019 – History buffs are invited to celebrate Lyndon B. Johnson’s August birthday at the newly renovated and opened Stonewall Motor Lodge (14818 US Hwy 290 E, Stonewall, TX) in the Texas hill country. The thirty-sixth President of the United States was born on August 27, 1908 in Stonewall, Texas. Stonewall Motor Lodge was originally built in 1964 to house the US Secret Service and Press Corp after Lyndon B. Johnson became President in 1963.

The Press Room at Stonewall Motor Lodge was once reserved for the Press Corps hoping to snap a shot of President Lyndon B. Johnson during visits to his nearby ranch. The Press Room now includes a king Euro top mattress, enlarged Euro-style bathroom, 300-thread-count sheets from Pine Cone Hill, luxurious William Roam bath products, a kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave, a Keurig, Netflix, and high-speed Wifi. The kitchenette was once a darkroom that served the Press Corp while covering LBJ’s visits to the Texas White House. The area is now decorated with these photos, not only of LBJ but also other Stonewall area visitors: astronaut Buzz Aldrin, actor George Hamilton, reporter Walter Cronkite, and President Richard Nixon.

Stonewall Motor Lodge is located on the famous Hwy 290 Wine Trail between Fredericksburg and Johnson City, less than fifteen minutes away from over fifty wineries, distilleries, and breweries, and is just minutes from the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park known as the Texas White House.

Rates begin at $89 on weekdays, $179 on weekends. Stonewall Motor Lodge is currently offering a 64 Days of Deals grand opening special. Guests who book two consecutive nights before September 8 will receive one night for just $64 and a Stonewall Motor Lodge swag (while supplies last). For more information and to book, visit
