History

JOHNSON CITY DISTRICT

The Visitor Center in Johnson City contains a permanent exhibit gallery that showcases Lyndon Johnson's life and accomplishments. It includes a world events timeline, a display depicting the highlights of LBJ's Great Society programs, and a tribute to Mrs. "Lady Bird" Johnson. Also offered are two video presentations, both 30 minutes in length. One is about the Johnson Administration, the other, about Mrs. Johnson's life and achievements.

Johnson Settlement: Lyndon Johnson's grandfather and great-uncle established a cattle-droving headquarters here in the 1860's. Their log cabin and subsequent barns, cooler house, and windmill are still here. There is also a modern exhibit center focusing on the cattle business, early Johnson family and settlement history, and Hill Country survival. A chuckwagon and longhorn cattle round out the "cowboy" atmosphere.

Lyndon Johnson's Boyhood Home: The former president lived here from the age of five until his high school graduation in 1924. The home is furnished in the early to mid-1920s period and as such depicts a rural Texas lifestyle of 75 years ago.

LBJ RANCH

The LBJ Ranch House, known as the Texas White House, was the home of President Johnson and a center of political activity for more than 20 years. Today, Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson resides here. Registered Hereford cattle graze at the ranch and are displayed at the Show Barn.

The Reconstructed Birthplace was built by President Johnson in 1964 on the site where he was born in 1908. The Johnsons furnished the home with family memorabilia and used it as a guest cottage.

Lyndon Johnson first attended classes in the one-room Junction School House at the age of four. As President, he signed into law the Elementary and Secondary Education Act at the same one-room school.

Along with his ancestors, President Johnson was buried at the Johnson Family Cemetery.
