Welcome to the Historic Clinton House Museum!

Come experience a piece of history in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. At one bedroom and 1,800 square feet, this unassuming house in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is like many other homes that surround it. However, this home has a special place in history.

Not only did a future U.S. president and U.S. senator call this their first home, but they were married right in the living room. Bill Clinton took Hillary Rodham's hand in marriage 17 years before he would be elected president of the United States. Here is your chance to see the house that served as a backdrop for that day in October of 1975. Come view a faithful replica of Hillary's wedding dress.

Witness rarely seen memorabilia of Clinton's early political career, building his campaigns for U.S. House of Representatives and state attorney general. Also, study some of Clinton's earliest political speeches showcasing his unique style that would eventually be discovered by millions across the globe.

Follow a timeline to put their Fayetteville years in perspective. Explore the University of Arkansas campus, where the Clintons taught at the law school. Visit our unique Gift Shop, discovering books, mementos, and much more. 

Bill Clinton Responds To The Death Of His 'Beloved Friend' Maya Angelou


President Clinton issued a statement Wednesday hours after the death of his friend, the poet and author Dr. Maya Angelou.

“With Maya Angelou’s passing, America has lost a national treasure; and Hillary and I, a beloved friend,” Clinton said. “The poems and stories she wrote and read to us in her commanding voice were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace.”
Angelou read the inaugural poem when Clinton was sworn in for his first term in 1993. In his statement, Clinton described the experience as “electrifying” and said it was followed by “years of friendship.”

“I will always be grateful for her electrifying reading of ‘On the Pulse of Morning’ at my first inaugural, and even more for all the years of friendship that followed,” said Clinton. “Now she sings the songs the Creator gave to her when the river “and the tree and the stone were one.”

Clinton concluded by sending his “deepest sympathies” to Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson, and his family.
