Visiting the Boyhood Home
The 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.
Park rangers give free guided tours of the home starting every half hour:
9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
To take the tour, meet the ranger on the front porch a few minutes before the next tour is scheduled to start.

An invasive plant that Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park has problems with just happens to be a non-native grass called Johnson Grass. Besides being tough to get rid of, it is poisonous to livestock if eaten just after a freeze. (photo ©Barry A. Rice/The Nature Conservancy)
