The site includes a big, brick "visitors center" with a gift shop and some pictures/info. The tour guide/ranger will take you to the house owned by Clinton's grandparents, where he lived for the first few years of his life. It's restored with reproductions of furniture from the time, but it's still pretty cool. Our tour guide was really funny and... More

If you're into presidential birthplaces or just random modern history, feel free to swing by. Oh and it's free, which is nice since so many historical sites charge to visit.

As of today they show a picture of a house saying it is the birthplace of William Jefferson Clinton. That is not the house you will see. Not sure if this house exists. We did see the house but missed it and had to be redirected to it. There is a large sign on the highway pointing to it but... More

Although none of the furniture is authentic, it is period and gives the visitor a sense of what it might have looked like. Very interesting facts shared by the staff. A very interesting experience. Photos allowed.

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
