The Clinton First Home Museum Blue Light Special

Hope, Arkansas The Clinton First Home Museum in Hope will display the trappings of its new status as a national historic site come the first of the year.

The future president lived in the two-story, wood-frame house on South Hervey Street until he was 4 years old, though the home served as the center of life for his extended family until he was 10. The home was sold after Bill Clinton’s maternal grandfather, Eldridge Cassidy, died in 1956.

More than 80,000 people from 159 countries have toured the home since the museum opened in 1997, according to the museum. Director Martha Berryman said international visitors compose a large portion of tourists who seek out the home.
