When visiting the LBJ National Historic Park and Texas White House (the LBJ Ranch) you must first stop by the Visitors' Center located just off Route 290 about half way between Fredericksburg and Johnson City. Make sure to get a permit for your car to enter the park and grab brochures to help you with your visit. The Visitor's Center... More

This was worth the visit! LBJ is not on the list of most popular presidents, but this tour gave us a whole different perspective on the man and the work he did. Information at these sites went back a couple of generations and then told of his days as president. Many of his working days were spent at this ranch... More

I've lived in Texas many, many decades, yet have never been here. Stood in a cold, dreary rain in January 1973 as a college student to walk by LBJ's casket. He was a Texan, through and through and a politician to be reckoned with. The grounds are well preserved and touring the house is quite an experience. What a time... More

This is a great site for learning not only about LBJ, but also Texas Hill Country. LBJ was born on this ranch and is buried here. You can see the boyhood home, the Texas White House, and even his grave. The buildings are a great way to learn. You get a real sense of the who he was. The exhibits... More

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.
