President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site in Hope, Arkansas, Established as 394th National Park
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site, Hope Arkansas, National Park Service
Contributed By: National Park Service

Washington, DC --- The President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site in Hope, Arkansas, was officially announced as the 394th park in the National Park System. The Home where President Clinton lived for the first four years of his life was set aside by Congress with Legislation (P.L. 111-11) signed by President Obama on March 30, 2009.

NPS Director Jon Jarvis said that the new park was, “a valuable addition to the National Park System and fits nicely with the twenty other homes associated with U.S Presidents that are managed by the National Park Service. We welcome this newest park into the National Park System.”

The 42nd President of the United States spent the first four years of his life in the two and one-half story frame house on Hervey Street in Hope, Arkansas. These were his formative years and President Clinton credited his family and the community with helping to shape his understanding of the world and influencing his development.

He lived here with his widowed mother and maternal grandparents for four years after his birth in 1946. His grandparents helped care for him when his mother was in New Orleans pursuing a nursing degree to support her young son. The Clinton Birthplace Foundation restored the home and opened it to the public in 1997.

The National Park Service will have personnel on site and will work closely with the Clinton Birthplace Foundation to transition from private to Federal ownership. The home is open to the public for tours. For more information and photographs, see the Foundation’s web site at: http://www.clintonbirthplace.org.

A public dedication is being planned for the spring of 2011.
