“Worth Stopping”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

This was a nice stop on the way to Little Rock. Easy access off the highway but be careful since it’s easy to drive past the house. The park ranger did an excellent job on our tour. She provided us with a lot of history regarding Clinton. The furnishings are not the originals but are typical from the time period. It’s worth stopping if you have the time.

“Wonderful Staff!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

What a great little piece of history! The staff was wonderful and it is always interesting to learn a little more personal history about a public figure. Great!

“Nice Place To Pull Off The Interstate”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a small park and does not take more than an hour to see the exhibits in the visitors center and tour the house. The house is located on the corner of Hervey Street and W. Division street. There is no parking lot for the visitors center but ample parking in front of the visitors center on W. Division Street.
The park service conducts tours of the house every half hour. You must take a guided tour by the ranger to view the house. The house is very interesting not only for its historical significance but due to the fact it is all furnished in period furnishing of that period. The furniture is not the actual furniture used by the family, but is historically correct for the time.
This is a nice place to stop, get off the interstate, and stretch your legs. You can also add another cancellation stamp to your NPS Passport.

“Worth the stop”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stopped on our way through to Hot Springs...well worth our time! Plenty of info about Clinton's life (even if you did not vote for him, remember he WAS a president!). The kids liked being in the house, so close to all the stuff (not peering through a roped-off doorway). They completed a Junior Ranger Program as part of the tour; short and sweet. Nice lunchtime stop.

“Nice stop over”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Passing through town and stopped for a visit. Park Ranger Cassandra (I think that is how her name was spelt) gave us a tour of the home and I have to say of all the Park Rangers we have met, she seemed to be the most informed and well versed in all aspects of the home and she made our visit very special.

The furniture that is in the house are period pieces and representative of the time Bill's family lived there but they are not the original furniture of the family.

When you get to the home, parking is on West Division Street and it is a little confusing when you get to the location. The visitor center is a small brick house with no signage on it and that is where you have to go to start the tour.
