LBJ Confidential

The boyhood home of Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States
(Click image to enlarge)

Traveling through the Hill Country took us to Johnson City, Texas. This bucolic town is the location of President Lyndon B. Johnson's boyhood home. It's now a national historic park maintained by the U.S. Park Service, along with his ranch a few miles out of town. We stopped in for a quick look and a tour led by park ranger Lou.

LBJ Confidential. That could have been scary. Cozy cottage!

VJ: It was interesting, that's for sure. I think his memory of where the outhouse was in relation to the house itself was a bit broad, but perhaps it's a metaphor for other things LBJ, too...
