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.

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.

This living history farm is probably the highlight of a visit to LBJ State Park. It is an easy .2 mile walk from the visitor center to the farm. The farm is a representation of a 1915 era German farm in rural Texas. The farmhouse,...More

If you are going to the LBJ Ranch, it is worth a few minutes to stop by the JOHNSON Family's neighbor's homestead. It is a very interesting working farm. The hosts are very nice and interesting. Two fat houses from the late eighteenth century and...More
