Preservation work begins at President Johnson’s boyhood home

JOHNSON CITY, Texas (AP) – The boyhood home of President Lyndon B. Johnson in Central Texas will be undergoing preservation work for the next few months.

The Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park said work at the home in Johnson City began Monday and will run through Sept. 25. While some areas of the house may temporarily close during the work, the home will remain open for tours.

Window frames, wood siding and porch flooring will be replaced.

Johnson moved into the home at age 5 in 1913. He lived there through most of his childhood. The house came into the national park system in 1969.

Johnson City is located about 50 miles west of Austin.
