This was a nice tour of LBJ's boyhood home. The ranger was very enthusiastic and recounted stories in an entertaining way.

By walking through the house in which LBJ grew up, one really gets a sense of what it was like for him to grow up in a small town. The house is open to all sides with a wraparound porch, and one can feel the breeze blowing. His father's office is right in front of the house, so it seems... More

We drove out from Austin and stopped here on the way out to the Texas White House. Like all the LBJ historical sites it is well done and nice to visit with great historical information that you might not have heard, read or seen before.

Of some historic value that does give a good representation of the humble beginnings of our 36th President and his life in in 1908. However, the house is a replica built on exact location. One is only allowed to peer into the home through glass installed enclosure within the doorways. There is a short recorded narrative of the time and... More

Very peaceful and wonderful look into the beginnings of LBJ life and you really see how sentimental and how important family was to LBJ. If you are on the tour stop and check this place out!

Just behind the home there is the visitor center and inside there you can view a movie and walk thru a very detailed exhibit. I hade visited... More

Located in Johnson City. The Visitor Center is a little hidden so it is best you had for the house and you will then see the Visitor Center which is across the street. There are tours every 30 min of the house. Beautiful setting and the starting point before you had for the ranch.

I highly recommend this tour not only to help you understand why LBJ became the force he did but because it is such an interesting house.

We took our girls (ages 10 and 6) to the Lyndon B. Johnson Boyhood Home on our recent road trip through central Texas. The Boyhood Home is part of the Johnson City unit of the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park. The other unit is the LBJ Ranch near Stonewall, TX, about 15 miles west of Johnson City. Any time... More
