However, this home has a special place in history. Not only did a future United States President and Secretary of State call this their first home, they were married right in the living room. Bill Clinton took Hillary Rodham's hand in marriage seventeen years before he would be elected President.Now, here is your chance to see the house that served as the backdrop for that day in October of 1975. You'll see much more than just a well-preserved and restored home in the beautiful Ozark mountains. Witness rarely seen memorabilia of Clinton's early political career, including his campaigns for US House of Representatives and Arkansas Attorney General. Study some of Clinton's earliest political speeches, showcasing his unique style that would eventually be discovered by millions around the globe. View a faithful replica of Hillary's wedding dress, and follow a timeline to put their Fayetteville years in perspective. Peruse our gift shop, discovering books, mementos, and more for a keepsake of your trip and be just steps away from the University of Arkansas campus where the Clinton's taught at the Law School. OPEN: MONDAY-SATURDAY 8:30am-4:30pm ADMISSION: ADULTS $8, STUDENTS $5 « less

Historic first home of Bill and Hillary's is a nice stop. Small museum with multiple displays throughout the couple's home provides insights into how they lived as well as the early days of their political careers. Give yourself an hour to enjoy!

As the title indicates, the museum is small but interesting, mostly containing photos and few artifacts. The director, Kate is well informed, and the garden is beautiful. A pleasant stop for an hour or so.

Their house is quite small but that is to be expected for them at that stage of their life. There was some memorabilia but not very much. It was a disappointment for me.

The house is lovely on the outside, but not worth the $10 per person to go inside. This is where the Clinton ' s were married while Bill was a teaching assistant at the University of Arkansas. It is a very short drive from Bud Walton Arena or Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.

We thought the house was nice but weren't expecting to pay $16.00, for 2, to get inside. It is a very tiny house and I really don't think it was worth it. There is a giant, colored pig on the front lawn and I wasn't quite sure what that was doing there. All in all, I really wouldn't waste your... More

This is the house the Clinton's lived in while teaching at U Arkansas. The small house is loaded with info about the Clinton's mostly related to his time in state politics.The small garden out back has flowers dedicated to 1st ladies favorite flowers. A nice visit for apx an hour but not worth the $8 charge.

Right next to University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, this is a fun tour with lots of interesting facts about the "20 something" Clinton's. Did you know he proposed to Hillary four times before she said 'yes'? This is the 'dream house' that sealed the deal. Completely redone in 2010 and turned back to what it was like in the 70's...

First it was hard to find this place. Then it cost $8.00 a person to get in. What a joke. There was a total of 9 rooms in this very small house. They give you a paper telling what the rooms are suppose to be. There was a man sitting in a room and couldn't bother to acknowledge we were... More

I'm from Arkansas but never knew the history behind the Clintons' "Fayetteville Years" The host/tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The map for visitors to stick a pin in from their hometown was cool (visitors even from Antarctica!) The tidbits they included to make this house as real as it was in the 70s makes this a must-see stop in... More

It is neat to steep into the house where Bill and Hilary Clinton lived. Very education and a nice way to spend a afternoon.
