Check out the pictures, videos, and information below.
For those interested in historical sites, this is an pleasant stop. The Home of President Clinton is located in Hope, Arkansas, at 117 South Hervey St. on Highway 278, about 2 miles from Interstate Highway 30. Watch closely after passing under the train viaduct for park sign--it is very easy to miss. The home is directly across from the park highway sign.The visitor center, where you start your visit is located just to the west of the actual home on Division Street where you can park during your visit. If you miss Division Street, go to the stop light on 2nd street and go around the block.
There are several places to stay right in Hope, Arkansas if you need a motel. If you are camping, I suggest you check out Millwood State Park.
