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.
