Before becoming the 42nd president and the first female major party presidential candidate, Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton were married 42 years ago in Fayetteville on October 11, 1975.
In observance of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s 42nd wedding anniversary, the Clinton House Museum will host a celebratory open house at the couple’s first home and the site where they married. This year the museum is including a birthday celebration for Hillary Rodham Clinton, who turns 70 on October 26th. Guests are invited to drop in between 6 and 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 25th. Parking is available in the driveway and across the street.
The event is free to the public and will feature food, music and photos of the couple throughout the years. Birthday party activities will take place outside, with the anniversary celebration taking place inside. No RSVP necessary.
Guests will have the opportunity to roam the First Ladies Garden and learn more about the man who would go on to serve as Arkansas' attorney general and governor before becoming president of the United States. Guests will also learn more of the history of the woman who would later serve as a U.S. senator and secretary of state before becoming the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate.
