It was a bit hard to find this place as it's off the main drag, but not by much. The house is pretty and nice to look at, but we arrived after hours, so I can't comment on any tour that might be offered. It's on a two way street with no parking, so it's a bit tricky to get out to take a picture. I think had we gone during regular open hours, the experience would have been more interesting.

This is a National Historic Site as of 2011. It I'd really well done with its authentic recreation of each room in the home. There is a visitor's center with a small gift shop and free tours given by National Park Ranger personnel. This is a free place to visit and it is very interesting to hear about President Clinton's life and those who cared for him and inspired him to be the person he is.

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.

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!

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.
