On SecondShelters: Part of LBJ’s Hill Country Retreat Is Up for Grabs


Just a week after becoming president, Lyndon Baines Johnson picked up a ranch in Blanco County — Johnson City, to be exact — as a hideaway where he could relax a bit.

That spread adjoined another parcel he had already picked up much earlier from an aunt, which is now for sale. Currently home to the artist Benini and his wife, and often referred to as the Benini Sculpture Ranch, the 142-acre ranch is now up for grabs.

  • While in college at The University of Texas I drove some insurance executives to a seminar at LBJ ranch. They had commemorative matchbooks available & I brought a couple back to my Father in law. He looked at one and commented that the Texas flag was upside down & he was right.
