Blanco County, Texas


Johnson City is the County Seat of Blanco County.  It was named for the pioneer Johnson Family, ancestors of President Lyndon B. Johnson.    Blanco County is a farm and ranch area.  Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park Information Center is two blocks south of U. S. 90.   The old Johnson Ranch was called the Johnson Settlement, owned by President Johnson's grandfather and great-uncle from 1867 to 1872.  It was the gathering point of a seven county area for cattle drives.  It also served as an aid station for those wounded in the Deer Creek Indian Battle.  It originally was a dog run cabin, barn and other buildings. The Pedernales Falls State Park which has 4,800 scenic acres is also located in Blanco County.

Document Your Family History

Do You Have Older Living Relatives? Interview them at the earliest opportunity. Document their irreplaceable "Library" of knowledge concerning your family history. Don't look back some day, having thought you had all the time in the world, only to realize you didn't.  Then, share the Knowledge. As our elders grow older, we must encourage them to again tell the old old stories that make us laugh until tears run, or cry sweet tears of remembrance. The voices that tell stories today are echoes of our loved ones who have come and gone before us.  We must strive to document and tell the life-stories that will mean so much to our descendants. Write your history, including life events that may seem trivial to you now, but will be a priceless treasure to your loved ones. Save, protect and share these stories with your family.

Thank You
