    When I was there, Lady Bird was still alive and therefore the house was closed to visitors.

    •  For a small admission fee, they do tours (6+ / 0-)

      You don't get to go upstairs, but you do get to see most of the first floor - the office where Johnson worked, the dining room, closets, study, kitchen, and the room where Johnson passed away from a heart attack. It's a relatively modest home by some measures, going back to the late 1800s with additions over the years.

      If you ever get to Gettysburg, PA, the Eisenhower farm is open to tours. Being able to compare and contrast added to the experience.

        I've been to the Eisenhower site. Very interesting place to visit.

        The television room in the back room was interesting to see. Though the Persian Rug in the living room, spoke volumes; considering where the gift came from.

        Also it was the only place where I've the seen the Nixon "Praetorian" guard White House uniform.
