The abundant wildlife of the Hill Country is highlighted by white tail deer, white face cattle, horses, longhorns and bison. The abundance of wildflowers augment these hillsides.
The Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site is in Gillespie County, between Fredericksburg and Johnson City and is on about 800 acres. It is the heart of the Texas Hill Country where our 36th President was born, reared, and died. Perhaps no other president is more closely identified with one parcel of real estate – including his birthplace, boyhood home, and ranch, as well as his ancestors' pioneer settlement. In this "home place," the values and world view of The Rancher President were formed, later to manifest themselves in the political arena during 37 years of public service.
