LBJ’s Mom’s House
This timeless treasure constructed of native stone from a nearby quarry, was built in 1882-83 by Irish craftsman Laurence H. Wall for a total cost of $1000. John Wilson Baines and his wife Ruth Ament Huffman (later grandparents of Lyndon Baines Johnson) purchased the home in 1887 and named it Amenthal. The home sits on the banks of the Blanco River and it’s Zen design is meant to relax you the second you walk through the original 1880s front door. The colors are muted tones of greens and creams with warmth provided by the pieces made from local Texas Pecan. Its upper porch is the perfect place to catch the stunning sunsets of the Texas Hill Country with your loved ones and a glass of wine.
