STONEWALL, TX – The National Park Service is temporarily closing the Texas White House and the adjacent Pool House until further notice due to health and safety concerns arising from structural issues. Both facilities are located within Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park.
The NPS is taking immediate action to investigate the safety concerns, which include closing both facilities. Both buildings will remain closed until the NPS can confirm that the facilities do not pose safety concerns.
All other park facilities are open to the public. These include the Johnson settlement, President Johnson's boyhood home, and the park visitor center in Johnson City. The LBJ Ranch driving tour is not affected, and the LBJ Ranch hangar visitor center is open as normal. The hangar visitor center features exhibits, artifacts, an award-winning 14-minute film, and a Western National Parks Association sales outlet.
