Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park

President Johnson, the 36th president of the United States had a deep attachment for place and heritage. He was born, lived, and died, on the LBJ Ranch. After he died in 1973, Mrs. Johnson continued to live at the Ranch until her death in 2007. Now visitors can tour the Ranch in their vehicles, and can stop along the way to view the President’s birthplace, Johnson family cemetery, and the Ranch House known as the Texas White House. Pick up a free driving permit at the LBJ State Park and Historic Site Visitor Center across RR 1 from the ranch. You will also receive a tour route map and a CD describing the ranch, route, historical sites and history. Along the way you’ll see the Presidential vehicles (including his amphibious car), The Texas White House The Reconstructed Birthplace, The Johnson Family Cemetery, the beautiful Texas Hill Country and the Pedernales River!
