What about LBJ Ranch?
LBJ Ranch tour is something exciting for the public and visitors. Moreover, LBJ Ranch is also famous as the Texas White House. This is the birthplace and resting place of former American President Lyndon B. Johnson. Mr Johnson was the 36th president of United States America. After his death in 1973, Mrs Johnson donated this place to the USA and is now famous as National Historical Park of the USA. Moreover, the president used to spend 20% of his time here in the office. Here, I am writing down briefly about LBJ Ranch. However, for full details, you may visit here.
