President Clinton's childhood home has been restored to its 1950s condition. This is the home Clinton lived in in Hope with his mother and grandparents. It is a step back to that era for sure but also a look at the very working class background of Clinton which made him such a man of the people. The US Park Service... More

I began my visit by looking at all the information in the NPS office which is next door to the Clinton house. A Park Ranger took three of us on a 20-30 minute tour of the house, explaining its history, items on display, etc. Vince Foster's childhood house is located next door. And, it was reported that down the street,... More

Very educational and interesting since we grew up in the same era but in New Jersey. Much of the home was very familiar. We learned that William Blythe later became Bill Clinton because if an unfortunate auto accident that took his fathers life before he was born. Very interesting history.

Not far off the highway, an opportunity to learn about Clinton's early days. Enter in the visitor center and a park ranger, this site is run by the National Park Service, will take you on a tour of the birth home. The furniture are not originals, but likely similar to what was originally here. The ranger will be able to... More

We enjoyed the house, a trip back in time to the 40's. Be sure to take a Ranger led tour of the house--offered every 30 minutes. We got to make lovely Christmas ornaments/souvenirs while there. All of it was free of charge.

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.
