And here, Johnson scares the living daylights out of newspaper reporters, supposedly one of his favorite sports, according to the docents.
The park property also includes a neighboring homestead. No electricity there. It is run by the docents in the same way most Hill Country Texans lived, including the Johnson family at one time. A windmill pumped water. Wood stoves were used for cooking and the buildings were logs. Here are young piglets and chickens.
In hot Texas summers, Hill Country folks made use of outdoor kitchens for canning and washing clothes.
Docents make sausages, headcheese and bake bread on a wood stove.
LBJ's country school house has been moved to the site. He and Ladybird are buried here, as well. Their house inside is quite unpretentious. True Texans, down home kind of people. They lived quite simply.
