This 142-acre property in Johnson City, Texas, is more than just a home; it’s one steeped in presidential history.

According to, President Lyndon B. Johnson purchased this parcel in 1963, one week after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. At the time, it was 800 acres. The website notes that this was Johnson’s vacation home, one that insulated him from the press. His main residence was a 330-acre ranch on the Pedernales River in central Texas.

The owners of the vacation home, an artist and his family, are selling it for $2,800,000. The property, 377 Shiloh Road, has a 1,800-foot elevation with 360-degree views. The 2,840-square-foot main house has been updated, offering three stone fireplaces and several porches, including one with a shower. It has three bedrooms, two baths, and a kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances.

Other structures on the ranch include a 12,000-square-foot hangar-turned-gallery and a 1,140-square-foot ranch house.
