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.

Our National Park Service is doing an excellent job interpreting the life and times of LBJ as a young boy, young statesman and President of the U.S. This is probably the main attraction in Johnson City which was a small rural town when Johnson lived here. The Park Service maintains a very nice visitor center/gift shop. There is a large... More

As usual, the U.S. Park service has done a wonderful job in presenting an interesting slice of history. Seeing the house where LBJ grew up provides a great insight in to how this President developed.

This is on the property of the LBJ Ranch so it's an easy visit if you are at the ranch. The Johnson's had this home reconstructed much like the original house actually looked. An interesting look at life in early 20th century Texas.

Johnson City is a sleepy little town at the crossroads east to Austin and Pedernales Falls, west to Fredericksburg, north to the Highland Lakes, and south to San Antonio. It is also an area dedicated to the legacy of our 36th President. First of all, the National Park designations tend to confuse - there is a National Historical Park both... More

LBJ boyhood home was very interesting to see. Takes you back to how life was in the early 1900s. Also lets you see how the wealthy lived then compared to what our homes are like now.
