Beautifully overlooking the Pedernales River! What a peaceful setting.

We were so disappointed to learn during our September 2020 visit to the LBJ Ranch that the Texas White House has been closed for years to tours due to structural damage.

We were only able to walk around the house structure on our own staying outside the walled-fence.

The pool to the side of the structure looked very inviting!

We reserved a room for a gymnastics competition and had to cancel 3 weeks before the stay. I was told I would get a partial refund if the room re-booked. I checked the website the night of the stay and got the message that no rooms were available, yet was told by the manager that the room did not book and therefore would be paying for a room we did not stay in. Very disappointed. We will be sure to make reservations in a place with a 24 hour policy in the future.

We were disappointed that it is now closed to inside tours. The tour guide was very informative and walked us around the grounds. Many areas of the grounds are also closed due to large oak limbs falling. The rest of the ranch was where we spent the bulk of our time.

Even though the Texas White House itself was closed due to structural concerns, there was still plenty to see. The drive thru the ranch lands, deer, and different cattle made for interesting sights. The hanger building had some nice exhibits, you could peek inside LBJ's personal jet, there were some personal vehicles behind the hanger. There are other structures on the property and the family cemetary. Staff at the hanger were friendly and informative.

Unfortunately the tour of the "white house" was closed for repair and renovation. It will be a 2 year process. You can walk in front of the house and in the back.

This place was definitely worth the stop and provides you with a close up, personal look at life for the Johnson family while Lyndon Johnson was President. The home sits inside the Lyndon B Johnson State Park also located in the same place and there are bus tours which take you all over the property and provide great historical perspective and information for any history buff. It's a great stop on any vacation!

After having been to the library in Austin we had the urge to stop here on our way to San Antonio. We were not disappointed. First of all, the weather could not have been nicer. We could see bluebonnets along the road, and when we got to the ranch the green pastures, cows (steer?) and all the rest was a sight for weary New England eyes. We were able to hop right on to a tour which was very informative and took us through the areas of the house open to the public.

It really gave you a sense of Johnson’s expansive leadership style. You could just picture him riding around in one of his cars with some visiting dignitary or other. It was also interesting to see Ladybird’s choices in decor etc. She lived on here for an additional 30 years after he died. In addition to his cars you can see the airplane he used, the sophisticated technology (for the time)he had, the cemetery and even the school house he attended. A great stop over on the way to SA.

There are two visitor centers for LBJ. The one in Johnson City is the National Park center near the boyhood home and the one near Stonewall is the state park with his ranch. The ranch is called the Texas White House. LBJ came back to his ranch when he could and actually spent about one fourth of his presidency here. But as you will learn, he was working when he was here. You stop at the Visitor Center and get a free permit to drive your car through the ranch. There are areas to pull off and park if you want to get out to see these places closer. It is still a working ranch today. You see a replica of his boyhood home, the cemetery, the show barn where the cattle are, and you end at the hangar and small visitor stop at the home. When first here, go in and get your timed ticket for a house tour. It is $3 each and is not covered with the National Park pass. Only 12 people can tour each time. While waiting for your tour, you can watch a short film, shop, look at the plane in the hangar and see the LBJ cars. Our guide Jim did a super job giving us a tour and helping us get a feel for the life in this home. You can take pictures at the ranch but not inside the house. This ranch is just over an hour west of the LBJ library. Highly recommended thing to do!

Having visited the LBJ Library in Austin we decided to visit his Texas Whitehouse near Johnson City. In Johnson City are his boyhood home and Johnson settlement along with a large visitor center. The Whitehouse and ranch is about 12 miles out of town. The only way to see the Whitehouse is by a tour for $3, everything else was free. Our tour guide Jerry was great and provided lots of insights as we toured the house. Definitely worth the trip from Austin.

You get a good feel of the time in this flashback to some decades ago just after JFK was assassinated. Enough to see for yourself and a great guided tour.
