Visit to Hope, AR

Last Wednesday after we drove down Highway 7 and visited Hot Springs, we also stopped briefly in Hope, Arkansas, to make a first quick visit to the President William Jefferson Clinton's boyhood home town.

We were already late in the afternoon, but the depot was still open with maps and we signed in as visitors. We were able to first drive by his second home (we will visit another time to stop and see exhibits):

Then, we found the official museum located behind the first home of the future president. The house was located on a busy street, so the museum entrance is in a parking lot on a side street:

Here is a pretty good photo of the front of the house that Nancy was able to take as we drove past:

It was another very good day! ;-)
