They have done a great job of presenting the first childhood home of William Jefferson Blythe, 42nd President of the United States. Although none of the contents are from the family, they are of the period and ring true with we who are also of the period. The gentleman at the reception and the lady who gave the tour were...

Hidden back off of the main road into Hope. You may miss it, if you're not looking. NPS Rangers were super friendly and helpful.

Small national historic monument. We almost missed it! Follow the signs, but look left IMMEDIATELY after driving under the railroad bridge. Stopped in for a short time a got a private tour of the house - thank you Ranger Aaron Charles for a great tour. It took me back to my roots in the early fifties.

Great little out of the way slice of history. Enjoyed seeing all of the memorabilia from the early 1950's. Thanks to Aaron Charles for the outstanding tour. And it was free!

This is a fun place to visit no matter what your political views. You can see the classic four square house that was the childhood home of a United States president and learn about the unique history of the area.

We stopped in Hope for a short break and decided to do the tour of the former US President William Clinton’s boyhood home. We didn’t have any trouble finding the visitor centre (huge sign out the front) located on W Division Street. House is adjacent, around the corner on Hervey St. While there is no sign on the house itself,... More

We took a side trip to Hope when visiting Crater of Diamonds State Park which is about 40 miles away. It was nice seeing how President Bill Clinton started out and where he lived for the first few years of his life. The rangers were very knowledgeable and the tour through the house was very interesting. If you are close... More

The ranger who gave the house tour was very good, more like a conversation then a canned talk some docent might give. It's interesting to walk around in the home of a future president. The site itself needs work there is no parking lot and if you didn't know how to get there you might have a hard time finding... More

This was a side trip from a music trip to Clarksdale and the Mississippi but it added so much to the trip. Gives a really good understanding of Bill Clinton's early days and his thirst for education to allow him to grow. It is quite an emotive experience.

This was a planned stop this past summer during our vacation. Our group of nine, (5 Adults, 4 Children/Teens) were in a tour group of our own. The tour was really good and efficient. The visitors center has a lot of interesting information on President Clinton and his early childhood. The home was nicely furnished so users could identify with... More
