Drop in and say a quick hello to Bubba and family.

If you're driving between Dallas and Little Rock, or visiting family in the Hope area, it's definitely worth worth a stop at the Clinton Birthplace home. The tours of the house... read more

It was interesting and short drive off highway. The sign on Hervey street is just past the actual turn just south of the overhead railroad bridge. You've been warned. Evidently, it takes an act of Congress (and it's republican majority) to get adequate signage. Lol The house is worth stopping. And doesn't take long to go through. As previously stated... More

If you're driving between Dallas and Little Rock, or visiting family in the Hope area, it's definitely worth worth a stop at the Clinton Birthplace home. The tours of the house are guided and take maybe twenty or thirty minutes. Our guide for the day was informative and had bits of antecdotal history about the home and Clinton's interactions in...

We stopped in Hope to see the President William J. Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site. The house has been renovated and reopened after an arson fire last year. We took the free tour and the ranger was very informative. The house was larger than expected and Clinton's mother's bedroom was huge. We also saw his bedroom, his maternal grandparents'... More

This attraction features the boyhood home of President Clinton and the more modern Visitor's Center next door. The Center has numerous photos and short bios of the President and members of his family. It also contains a gift shop and features the Virginia Clinton Kelley Memorial Garden which is very nice. When entering the Center, watch out if you have... More

Although the objects on view are period pieces not owned by the Cassidy or Clinton families, the birthplace restoration is excellent and communicates a real feel for President Clinton's origins, despite a recent arson attempt. Nice family photos, including one winning a "cutest baby contest." Plus, admission and tour are free.

Before my husband and I left for our great Southern adventure at the beginning of August, I had noticed that this would just be a quick photo-op and get my National Park Passport stamped in the visitor center because the house was closed due to a fire (arson) back in December. When we walked in, a ranger kindly met us,... More

The main house is currently close for renovations. As such the only thing to see is a few pictures in the visitors center and some videos on an iPad. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would probably give a higher rating if tours of the house were available.

This is a quick stop to learn a bit about our 42nd President and earn a stamp for your National Park Passport book. The house is still closed for renovations, but you can look inside and visit the small informative display about his life in the visitor's center.

Though the house is under repair from a fire we could not go in still nice to say I visited it. The visitors center was very informative.

My friends and I stopped by here on a road trip through Arkansas (we just happened to see a sign for it on the interstate and took the exit to check it out). The house was closed for renovations but the visitor's center had a great exhibit with pictures of the home. There was a young man named Aaron Charles... More
