LBJ Ranch

Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th president of the United States of America, is buried in his family's cemetery on the LBJ Ranch.

The Texas White House, so named because President Johnson spent about one third of his term at his farm in Stonewall, Texas.

The home is over 8000 sf. but does not look it.

The room on the left was used as "the oval office"

From the rear you can see a better view of the room that now appears on the right.

Any aircraft the president flies on is designated 'Air Force One".

LBJ liked to call this one "Air Force 1/2". The large Air Force One was flown to Austin and this smaller plane was used to reach the ranch.

A grass airstrip was already in place on the ranch and it was paved when LBJ became vice president.

Love him or hate him, LBJ was the president that shaped the nation during my teen years.
