Comments: These parks tell the story of our 36th President beginning with his ancestors to his final resting place on this, his beloved ranch. This "circle of life" provides a visitor the most complete picture of any American President. The NPS offers 20-minute tours of the recently renovated ground floor of the Texas White House. A fee of $3 is charged for the tour. Related LBJ sites may be found in Johnson City.
