In Fayatteville, Arkansas, you can step inside the first home of Bill and Hillary Clinton, where they lived and wed when they taught at the University of Arkansas’ Law School in the 1970’s. The Clinton House Museum contains memorabilia from the Clintons’ rise to power and intimate artifacts from their life together.
It’s not only the home where Bill and Hillary Clinton first lived together. It holds many memories. The two got married in the living room, and as I learned from local Jesse Leonard, who led me on my tour, Hillary Clinton was really fond of this home.
Watch the above video and check out the photos from this insider’s tour.
You’ll find lots of fun photos inside this museum from Bill Clinton on the campaign trail and Hillary, too.
This is just one stop in Arkansas related to the Clintons. You can also check out the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. Pick up a passport at each location that you can get stamped on your own “Billgrimage.”
In the living room, check out a replica of Hillary Clinton’s wedding dress, which she picked up off the rack at Dillards the night before.
The kitchen has been restored to what it looked like when the Clintons lived here. There’s a very bright orange and yellow refrigerator and other very colorful colors! Bill and Hillary painted some of the walls themselves.
Behind the home, visit the First Ladies Garden. It features the favorite flower of every first lady, from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama.
Hillary Clinton’s flower is the hydrangea.
Laura Bush favored the Petunia.
Nancy Reagan, Betty Ford and Jacqueline Kennedy cherished roses, while Dolley Madison was a fan of the lesser known Aster.
The garden and home are an interesting walk through presidential history and a great place to get a more personal sense of the Clintons.
