Came upon the boyhood home by accident as I was taking a walk. It was very nicely taken care of with the house, barn, and water tank. It did give you an idea of life in those early times.

We spent so much time at the ranch that we had very limited time here. The ranger was very kind and gave us our own quick walk through the house. She was incredibly well versed on Johnson family multi generation history, and really engaging.

Stopped here and am glad we did. It gave us a good perspective on the early years of LBJ and what influenced him. It was clear to see the influence he had on his home town...humbling.

I love historic sites and this was a good one. Great way to get a feel for what it was like growing up very poor in a small Texas Hill Country town in the 1920s.

We didn't spend a lot of time here, although the museum was nice. It was a nice, short stop and is a pretty home.

Also having a couple of dogs with us, it was nice that we could take them out for a walk around this block. In the visitor's center they have a little exhibit, which is actually quite nice. A pretty decent little gift store also

To find out when the tours are for LBJ's boyhood home, visit the National Park Service center across the street from the home. We went in to find out info, and discovered that there was a tour in just a few minutes from our arrival,...More

Great reconstruction of President Johnson's boyhood home! The entire self-guided tour that takes you through his first school, home and ending at the Texas White House is highly recommended !

I learned a lot about LBJ from taking this tour. The park ranger who gave the tour was very informative about President Johnson's history. The house itself was charming, as were the grounds and the other buildings belonging to LBJ's grandparents. I recommend it highly.

Thank NHjo
