Childhood home of former President Bill Clinton to reopen

July 28, 2016

HOPE, Ark. (AP) — The home in Hope where former President Bill Clinton spent the first four years of his life is set to reopen following a Christmas Day fire.

National Parks Service officials told reporters that volunteers and employees are unpacking boxes in an effort to have the home ready for visitors on Saturday.

The Christmas Day fire that was called arson damaged the exterior and some of the interior of the home and graffiti was found on a sidewalk and on a door of the home. Authorities did not immediately return phone calls Thursday for comment on whether any arrests had been made.

The President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site was owned by Clinton’s maternal grandparents and he lived there with his mother following his birth in Hope.
