Owner description: We love welcoming guests from all over the world to the first home of Bill and Hillary Clinton and where they were married. The Museum is situated in the beautiful Ozark Mountains in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This home has a special place in local, national, and international history. Bill Clinton took Hillary Rodham's hand in marriage 17 years before he would be elected President. The home's series of owners also have deep roots in local Arkansas history. The museum houses memorabilia of Clinton's early political career, including his campaigns for US House of Representatives and Arkansas Attorney General. Temporary and timely exhibits cover the history of Secretary Clinton's life in public service and her time in Arkansas. The collections include a faithful replica of Hillary's wedding dress and a timeline of the Clinton years in Fayetteville. Our museum store has books related to the Clinton legacy, Arkansas history, Arkansas politics, and the culture of the Ozarks. We also have mementos, gifts, and more for a keepsake of your visit. The Museum is open to the public and donations are welcome.

This museum is in a charming, quirky little house where the Clintons lived in their youth. The house is filled with interesting details. It's a quick visit, interesting for fans of the Clintons, people interested in politics, and those who are curious about daily life in Arkansas in the 20th century.

This house is the first place Bill and Hillary Clinton lived after getting married. They lived here for less than two years but they left their permanent stamp here and the rest is history. It is restored to the time they lived here so it looks like a typical house would have in the early 1970s. Entrance is free and short guided tours are given

We made a quick stop here while going on a road trip. We really enjoyed touring the house and learning about Bill and Hillary's wedding :). We also really liked the "First Lady Garden" and think you should check it out if you are in the area! It was myself and my 9 year old daughter on this trip.

This is a small house where Bill and Hillary got married and lived while teaching at the U of A. It was interesting to see where a former President lived. The museum is free and doesn't take long to tour. The lady who works there was very friendly and informative. Be sure to visit the back gardens. We were here in winter but I'm sure they are beautiful in the growing season.
