Entrance to this site is free and everyone is welcome! Stop at the visitor center for the state and national park to receive your receipt (for your windshield) and then stop in.

Enjoyed the self tour of the Living History Farm. We got to watch the farm animals, tour the house and out buildings at our leisure. The woman there (dressed in period costume) gave us an informative insight into the daily and weekly duties in the kitchen and home during the period. It was taking a step back in time.

This Farmstead Tour can be part of the historic tour of the LBJ property and Texas White House. The home is across the river from the Johnson property and run by the State of Texas. It gives an interesting insight into what it was like to settle in Texas in the mid 1800's.

Great for children and adults alike! It's unfortunate this attraction is hard... More

Our grandkids loved visiting here... buildings and farm just as they were years ago and demonstrated by volunteers who are dressed in early 20th century clothes. All the food is from the farm - milk, eggs, produce, and meat. I loved the old laundry building, the tiny kitchen with wood burning stove. The kids loved the farm animals and all... More
