Today in Texas History – June 1

From the Annals of the State Parks –  in 1969, the Lyndon B. Johnson State Historical Park opened to the public.  The state park is directly across the Pedernales River from the LBJ National Historical Park which encompasses much of the LBJ Ranch.  The two parks operate largely in tandem and feature numerous sites including the family cemetery where LBJ and Lady Bird are laid to rest.
