I'm a bit of a Bill Clinton fan, so I decided to do the 'Bill Clinton trail', which was Hope, Hot Springs and the Arkansas Presidential Library. It's most appealing feature was that it was free. You go into the welcome centre, which is in a separate building, and you see in the welcome centre some exhibits of Bill Clinton and his boyhood. The house is not his actual first house he lived in, but he lived in this house for most of his youth. I believe there is another house in Hope, which was his first, but this is a private residence, and can't take photos. He has another home in Hot Springs, which is the same, a private residence. The main house in Hope, is very interesting. It was restored back in the 00s I believe, from the "Friends of Bill Clinton Society", who bought the house, refurbished it, and gave it the NPS. The house has personal artifacts of BC, such as photos of him and his family, or furniture that belonged to him. I think most of the stuff in the house is what would have been in the house, from when BC was living in the house, so not stuff that BC actually used or touch. The 'Rangers' were very helpful, and knowledgeable, they also give you a guided tour of the house at no cost (you can't view the house inside by yourself), and will be able to answer most of the questions of the place for you. If you like BC, or even if you don't and you're passing Hope, it's definitely worth going, very interesting. It's a good hour to see everything in the welcome centre and the house.
The security guard / receptionist who greeted us was super friendly and offered a tour of the house. Neat little spot and a worth visiting if passing through.
NPS operated, clean and good guides very knowledgeable
Really enjoyed the time spent here even though a good bit was closed due to fire damage.
