Texas National Park

August 11th, 2010 by Lynn MacWithey

LBJ State and National Park, located just outside Fredericksburg, Texas, has made some important changes.  When visiting the park , you now receive a CD and are allowed to drive through at your leisure and stop and visit the sights. Just 15 minutes from some great Bed and Breakfast inns, the “Texas White House”,

Front Lawn of the Texas White House

 LBJ’s retreat from Washington, is now open to the public with many rooms restored to their original condition and more rooms to open in the future.  The Jet Star aircraft that LBJ used before and during his presidency has just been returned to the ranch as a permanent display.  Don’t miss the great changes at this Texas Hill Country treasure!  Visit Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm while there and see how self sufficient they were, and are, as volunteers carry out the day to day activities of a turn-of- the-century Texas-German family farm.
