Junction is a town of 2600 persons; it is the county seat of Kimble County, population 4100. The economy is agriculture based, with ranching and hunting being the primary source of income. The county is in the geologic region of Texas known as the Edwards Plateau. Eroded limestone hills are cut through by streams, which feed the two major rivers of the area, the North and South Llano Rivers. The town site is at the "junction" of these two rivers. Kimble County has over 300 miles of flowing streams, more than any other county in Texas. The water comes from springs which are prevalent throughout the area.
The climate is moderate in this semi-arid county. Average annual temperature is 64.7°. Rainfall averages 22 inches yearly.
Because of the location on interstate highway 10 and the fact that it is the county seat, the town provides for a variety of goods and services. Kimble Hospital, emergency medical service and a staff of physicians, other medical professionals including dentists, serve the community.
