Clinton Presidential Library and Park
Clinton Presidential Library
The Clinton Presidential Library and Park -- America's 12th Presidential Library is located on the banks of the Arkansas River in the River Market District of downtown Little Rock. The $160-million-dollar structure contains 20,000 square feet of library and museum space, including an authentic replica of the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room.
Exhibits in the Clinton Library museum are designed by Ralph Appelbaum and Associates of New York. Among its numerous notable achievements, Appelbaum and Associates created the powerful exhibits at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. The Clinton Library contains the largest collection of presidential papers and artifacts in U.S. history.
The Clinton Presidential Library is situated in a 30-acre city park, which replaces an industrial site of old warehouses and vacant space. Also part of the Clinton Presidential Library and Park, the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service is located within the park in the renovated 1899 Choctaw Station.
Additionally, future plans include the renovation of the abandoned Rock Island Railroad Bridge near the Clinton Library as a pedestrian crossing over the Arkansas River. The facility exceeded 400,000 visitors in its first year of operation, well above the projected goal of 300,000.
