The home had a fire on the back porch and is temporarily closed. We enjoyed the visitor's center which had a lot of interesting displays on Clinton's early life in Hope. He lived here until the age of six when the family moved to Little Rock.

We stopped in Hope, AR overnight and planned on going to this on our way out of town. We were able to get into the Visitor's Building and were able to get up to the house, but the house tour was not being run, because of a recent fire (not their fault). We found the information in the Visitor's building... More

We were on a long road trip and stopped by a fast food chain when I saw the signs for this place. We decided to stop by and take pictures. Park Rangers were very informative.

Was in Hope, Arkansas for an extended business trip and found out I was also in the boyhood hometown of former president Bill Clinton.There is a local landmark and visitors center of his original home. It shows the very modest upbringing this very popular president grew up in. Very worthwhile visit.

We were driving past Hope and had time on our hands, so decided to visit this place, and we are glad we did. There is no charge, and it was interesting enough, an hour or so would do it. Walk around the house and take in where Clinton grew up, I think it was upto Age 4.

I was in the area for work so I stopped by, it was great! I didn't actually get to go into the house because it was too late, but I did get to walk around the grounds and sit on Bill Clinton's home's rocking chairs! It was cool, you could see his old swingset and the grounds are very well... More

The National Park Service now owns the Clinton home in Hope. They have a visitor center in a house next to the Union Pacific Railroad tracks, just east of the underpass for Hervey Street. From the visitor center a Park Ranger will conduct a tour of the adjacent Birthplace home. Tours begin every 15 minutes or so. This house is... More

We had visited President William Jefferson Clinton's Birthplace Home before it was taken over by the National Park Service and is now considered one of the National Historic Sites in Arkansas. The house and its furnishings all appear to be about the same as when it was run by a Trust. This modest house, which is located on Hervey Street... More

While driving through Hope, Arkansas, we just happened to notice a small sign that indicated that Bill Clinton's boyhood home was two blocks away. There was no indication that the home was open for tours; just a sign identifying the former resident. The house was a typical white frame found in so many small towns built during the 20's-40's.
