Amazing that there is so much original about this home and so many furnishings and items that belonged to the family. LBJ was born nearby in 1908, but lived here in this home during his childhood. Very interesting!

Well worth the stop just to get an excellent tour of the house. We were lucky to have the guide (I forget her name but she had red hair) who was so knowledgable and passionate about all things LBJ. And it's all kept so well....More

Small house, but an easy trip and worth the time. The park service takes care of the property and provides hourly tours. The nearby trail offers a quaint view of his parents upbringing.

Really enjoyed this place. Have been here before, yet it is always interesting to look at. It is free of charge. Nice visual look of the grounds. Might even see a longhorn or two.

Johnson's father was a successful businessman and state legislator, so this is where Lyndon grew up and most importantly first became interested in politics. A fairly nice home for the time and place, it includes a walking tour of some vintage farm structures owned by...More

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.
