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.

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.

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
