President Johnson's birth place
My sister and I were touring the Lyndon Baines Johnson ranch just outside of Johnson City, Texas and we came upon the place where the former President was born. The actual building has been replaced but it is a close resemblance to the original house. It is a true "dog trot" style structure and today it serves as a guest house. President Johnson lived in this house for the first six years of his life with his parents and several siblings. His grandparents lived just down the road. The house sits in a very peaceful spot with a river running close by. As you can see, he came from very humble beginnings and then went on to become powerful as president of the United States.
