A very interesting piece of History

Enjoy a ranger-led tour through President Johnson's boyhood home. Then drive a few miles out of town to the LBJ Ranch where you see the home he lived in while President.

The house itself was interesting to look at, but the ranger guide we had for the boyhood home tour wasn't great. He went through his spiel at 100 miles per hour, and didn't really give anyone an opportunity to ask questions (maybe that would cause him to forget the rest of the speech? who knows.) It was as though he... More

The visitors center offers a 25 min film that is narrated and at time also by President LBJ where he takes the viewer on a tour of the ranch and his memories of growing up in this home and on this property. Beautiful setting, gorgeous trees, Pedernales River filled with water and all well maintained.

Includes two films and a good visitor center up to National Park standards. Then, take a guided tour of the boyhood home. If time, walk the Johnson Settlement.

Guided tours every 30 minutes which are free. Home is restored to time President Johnson moved there at Age 4. Surprisingly large home for the era.

Be sure to include this site after you visit the ranch. It rounds out the whole experience. This is the boyhood home where you will see LBJ's bedroom, dining room, kitchen, porches, out house, etc.

The visitor's center staff was quite helpful and friendly. They pointed out the trail to the Johnson Settlement, which was the original tract of land (320 of which was donated to form the city of Johnson City) settle by the Johnsons (ancestors of LBJ, President Lyndon Johnson). There is a small museum, a gift shop, restrooms and a water bottle... More

I know very little about the former Prez. Having said that when I saw this was in the area of where I was I decided to stop by for a visit. There's plenty of parking at the Visitor Center. The girl working there was very helpful with info and directions (I believe her name was Charlotte.) I took a stroll... More

This is part of the LBJ ranch. I would suggest you visit after a tour of the White House as it will give a better insight.
