Part of the LBJ Park Drive

It was interesting to see how LBJ lived before he became president. He was very low-key. My Dad said he was a real red-neck!

We stopped in Johnston City to see the boyhood home of LBJ. The home has been preserved and you can have an informative tour of the house. You can see where his father, a legislator, worked and LBJ learned about politics. The rooms are simple but well laid out, not much luxury. There was indoor water as a result of... More

This is a ten minute or so stop while visiting the national park, but it provides background to the President and his humble origins.

We arrived in Johnson City at 9am on a coach tour. It was deserted ... half expected to see tumbleweed blowing down the main street. We were give an hour to explore the area. That was 59 minutes too long. Nothing opened until 10am ... we couldn't even get a coffee anywhere. Most of us on the coach ended up... More

The tour of LBJ's boyhood home was very interesting and informative! To see how one of our greatest presidents lived as a boy was truly an honor! The home is very well preserved and decorated. Before the tour, you may explore the history and life of LBJ, along with watching a documentary film with on LBJ or Ladybird Johnson. We... More

A very interesting journey back in time. It is amazing to see where one of our presidents was born and raised. The park ranger we spoke with was knowledgeable and friendly.

This is my second time to visit the Boyhood Home and it was just as interesting now as it was 20 years ago. It is in superb condition and the park rangers know their subject so it is a very informative tour.

LBJ's boyhood home is interesting to see. It is across the street from its accompanying visitor center in Johnson City. Not to be confused with the LBJ Ranch area 14 or so miles to the west, this attraction takes you back to his elementary school and teenage years in Johnson City. My wife and I toured the facility accompanied by... More

We went out to Johnson City Texas and went by the boyhood home of President Lyndon B Johnson. It was like walking in to the past it was very very neat to see such a modest boy head home which in 1901 would have been a mansion.
