This Place Matters

People who visit the Clinton House come for this experience of just standing in a place where history happened, where a future Governor, President, Senator, Secretary of State started their lives as a couple. The house is a modest one, but isn’t that the point? We tell a story here of a young Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham, a couple who married and launched their careers in Fayetteville, Arkansas, a modest city in a small state.
