We brought our granddaughter here, and she loved it! She is 7. She was interested in all aspects of the farm...but we were careful to not point out the inevitable fate of the animals. She was thrilled to be invited into the hen house to...More

Relax, put on your work clothes, sit on the porch, watch the farm animals meander and grass grow. Great place for family, friends and visitors.

At this historic farm you'll go back to the time of milking cows, churning butter and hand-tooling farm implements. This is a fun place to take the younger generations. Even though the volunteers are dressed in period costumes, they are doing real farm chores and...More

This is a wonderful look into life during the later 1800s when life was much simple. The homes were built with stone and lumber, then parts were added over the years as the families grew. There are many animals roaming the grounds and the staff...More

The farmstead is on the self-guided driving tour that takes you to the Texas White House, etc. People in period dress provide information of life in the area when LBJ was a young boy. Interesting and informative. Worth the time.
