On September 21, 2020, the Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion Commission voted unanimously to approve a motion to decrease funding for the Clinton House Museum for 2020. We understand the vote was made in response to the substantial decrease in tourism revenues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is our understanding the Commission has provided us with adequate time in which to take action to preserve this important landmark.
The Clinton House Museum has a new exhibit in house to commemorate the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment. Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence is a Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service poster exhibition.
The Clinton House Museum has earned recognition as a Bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Business from the League of American Bicyclists.
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. They represent the spirit of the American promise, that anyone from anywhere can make a positive impact in the world through public service. This house and its story are living illustrations of the American values of democracy, hard work, and service to others. This place matters.
