Learned a lot about the former First Lady. She helped Lyndon by financing his early runs for office. She owned several tv and radio stations in Austin. She lived an additional 34 years past the President. LBJ smoked 6packs of cigarettes a day. The house was modest and had 3 tvs. Interesting area to explore in hill county Texas.

Really enjoyed the tour of the Texas White House---tour guide was very informative, and it was cool to see the house as it was in the 60s. The driving tour was interesting as well---watch out for the cattle, they can and will cross the road wherever they please. Make sure you get the free permit at the State Park---no one... More

Simple but plentiful grounds for a ranch (but did you expect the city?) You have to drive through most of the acreage & airstrip to get to the final house destination. Get reservations for the house tour immediately, it is the only way to get in. FREE. National Park. Home is how it was since LadyBird's passing less than 10... More

As a man in his early sixties, I had a mostly negative View of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. After my visit to his ranch and home my view has changed her medically. As I mentioned in my other reviews I'm on a quest to visit as many national parks, monuments, etc. as possible so that's why I made my way... More

Regarded by many as a brash and self serving president, the Texas White House, helps one delve into a more complicated and mindful man. From Civil Rights to Vietnam and the moon shot, the exhibits humanize this giant of a man. You can actually picture Lyndon and Lady Bird at home in this well preserved home and ranch.

A very educational way to learn not only about LBJ but the history and scope of Texas ranching. It is a working ranch where we had to stop the car to let a bull cross the road. The Johnson cemetery is on the ranch overlooking the Pedernales River.

So interesting to see the different sites, homes, etc. on the ranch, now National Park. It is still a working farm and the sweeping views are beautiful. An inside peek into LBJ, the man, the lover of his country and the land. Also, Lady Bird's passions and influences. Certainly worth a visit, if you plan on being in the area.

If you are traveling on Highway 290 between Austin and Fredericksburg, don't neglect the opportunity to stop and take this tour. Both the self guided driving tour and the tour of the Texas White House conducted by a Ranger of the park service are excellent. ($3 for the WH tour) Love him or hate him, LBJ was able to negotiate... More

Visit the LBJ boyhood home in Johnson City as well as the ranch a few miles out of town. You will learn very much about this controversial yet lovable man.

The ranch buildings and the Texas White house building are nothing great to look at themselves but the setting of the Texas Hill country with the trees is great view. The whole thing is like a time capsule of the sixties which I guess is what it is meant to be. The building tour and the information given is very... More
