WELCOME to Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park

Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park is a National Historical Park in central Texas about 50 miles west of Austin in the Texas Hill Country. The park protects the birthplace, home, ranch and final resting place of Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States. During Johnson's Administration, the LBJ Ranch house was known as the Texas White House.

The park is split into two distinct visitor areas, Johnson City and the LBJ Ranch. The first unit, located in Johnson City, contains the boyhood home of President Johnson and his grandparent's log cabin settlement as well as the National Park Visitor Center. 

The second unit is located roughly 14 miles west of Johnson City along the north side of the Pedernales River. 

Among the sites preserved at the Ranch are the President's first school, birthplace, Texas White House and the Johnson Family Cemetery. The land south of the Pedernales River is operated as Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site. In order to see the LBJ Ranch, visitors take a National Park bus tour from State Park visitor center.

The park was authorized on December 2, 1969 as Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Site and was redesignated as a National Historical Park on December 28, 1980. 

Present holdings are approximately 1,570 acres, 674 acres of which are federal. The Johnson family generously continues to add to this property; their most recent donation of land was in April, 1995.
