President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home

The house in which Bill Clinton was born and lived the first four years of his life.

Reviewed By canbelto - Los Alamos, New Mexico, United States

There's not much to this National Historical Site, just a visitor center and the small, plain house where President Clinton lived with his mother and grandparents (his father died before he was born) for his first four years. Very few original furnishings or personal effects remain from those days; the family was clearly much too busy trying to scrape out a living for them to preserve much, and they certainly didn't have any inkling of what lay in store for that small child. The physical structure and its furnishings accordingly come across as rather blah. The rangers, however, make up for this by being well informed and knowledgeable, and they do a fine job of communicating just what life was like back then for this seemingly unexceptional, even struggling family. It's well worth a quick stop if you're passing through.

Visitors Information Center

Reviewed By j68ky - Kentucky

While waiting for our burgers at Tailgaters...located across the street from the visitor's center, I did a quick tour of the information center and met the nicest lady...Elizabeth. The center is filled with Huckabee and Clinton memorabilia and I left with plenty of information on the town and state. Elizabeth walked me out the door and onto the sidewalk to make sure I understood how to get back to the interstate...she is a real asset to the city and just a delight.

Klipsch Museum of Audio History

The Klipsch Museum of Audio History highlights the achievements of Paul W. Klipsch, a founding father of the audio industry. It is housed in an historic building that served as the first Klipsch factory in 1948, and was previously the telephone building during WWII for the Southwestern Proving Grounds. Most artifacts on display are the work of Mr. Klipsch, but there are many others too.

I am so glad that I had a chance to visit this museum this week because it is only open on Wednesday, Thursdays and Fridays from 10 am - 2 pm. The museum is dedicated to Paul Klipsch, an American Engineer and high fidelity audio...MoreThanks so much for the kind words! The Whitman's were a pleasure to meet. They basically drew out my "drink from a fire hydrant" spiel on Paul Klipsch and his diverse career. I look forward to another visit from them. Bring your friends!!!

Reviewed By beckywrightsongs - Tahlequah, Oklahoma

Our hotel in Hope listed upcoming events, including $4 movies at Hempstead Hall, which is part of the University of Arkansas branch campus there. It was a 1st-run current movie (Jumanji), and so affordable! The facility is BEAUTIFUL and HUGE, and was hosting a Travis Tritt concert the following weekend! The main performance hall had one movie screen, but also a stage (for concerts, etc.). Concessions were open, bathrooms were humongous -- and clean! Uniformed staff were very friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed our night, and thankful for affordable family entertainment:) Even bought our tickets online 45 minutes before the show.
