Johnson City does not have much remaining of the original Victorian architecture of the city, and what little that is left is not great. However, the LBJ house and the courthouse are the exceptions. If you are driving through, they are worth the effort to drive a block off 290 in different directions and look at them. There is signage... More

Stepping back in to time to see that anything is possible for all of up when you take in the view of how and where a young man's roots began.

We were not able to give the visit much time but glad we stopped. The tour of the Texas White House was informative and well worth the 3$. The visit gave a new perspective on President Johnson and his presidency. We were there close to 9 and on our way after 12.

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!
