The adventure begins at the Visitor Center where you can see exhibits and films depicting the lives of President & Mrs. Johnson. From there is is just a short walk to his boyhood home where he lived from age 5 til his marriage at age 26.
Our next stop was the reconstructed house where he was born August 27th, 1908. The house was rebuilt by the President and used as a guest house.
Just past that and across the street is the Johnson Family Cemetery where generations of Johnson's are buried. The President was laid to rest here on January 25th, 1973 and Lady Bird some 30 years later.
Also on the property was the Presidents Grandparents house. They lived here after moving from Johnson City where they lived out their lives.
And here is my first live & close up LONG HORN!
