It is hard to believe a Texan, from a hill country ranch, down by the river could achieve what he did. I loved the setting, the history and the end to his story.

As a Texan, I will always have a soft spot for Texas history. I checked out LBJ's boyhood home because it was part of my National Parks passport journey, but seeing this cute little home was net and yet familiar. The preserved history is great...More

We barely caught the last tour and we are so glad. It's a nice house with a white picket fence. The outhouse is on the edge of the property far from the house. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative and didn't rush us...More

Our very nice, knowledgeable tour guide was well-versed in Johnson settlement and family history. Made the house and the activities in and around the house come alive. We enjoyed seeing it and we thank her very much for service.

The home is well preserved and worth a visit-- but the visitor center 2 blocks away is much more interesting! Don't miss the Johnson Ranch, some 15 minute drive to the west, and the LBJ library in Austin; both are must see locations. Very friendly...More

We arrived about 1 PM during Spring Break. Still found easy, close parking. Quiet area. Tourists friendly. Loved how we could amble the grounds unsupervised, leisurely. Got to sit out back on the benches under the ginormous oak trees. Lots of photo ops. This first...More

Drove 53 miles to visit this and the ranch! Very informative and well presented! Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us some funny stories she’d read!

Great tour led by a park ranger of LBJ's boyhood home. Amazing to think that all the things we take for granted now were unavailable back then. That's especially true of the log home adjacent to the property that was built by his grandfather. Certainly...More
