The President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site in Hope is featured as this week’s National Park Getaway by the National Park Service! They are also featured on the front page of the NPS website this week.
Each week, details on a U.S. national park are featured on the site. For instance last week, Everglades National Park in Florida was highlighted. President Clinton’s home is one of seven national park sites in Arkansas and one of the nearly 400 national parks throughout the U.S. President Clinton attended the formal dedication ceremony of the historic site on April 16, 2011.
The unassuming house on Hervey Street was home to the 42nd President of the United States for the first four years of his life. He lived with his widowed mother and maternal grandparents, who helped care for him during the times his mother was in New Orleans pursuing her nursing degree to support her young son.
Here is an article written about the site by Park Ranger Christian Davis.
Other Arkansas sites featured so far also include Hot Springs National Park.
